Why is your head so far forward? Forward Head Posture
Forward head posture is endemic to our society. It is a type of bad posture usually caused by too much sitting and misalignment in the pelvis which can cause a chain reaction of muscle and tissue imbalances that make the head go forward.
Typically the muscles complaining in pain in forwarding head posture are the overworked posterior muscles of the neck, which serve to extend, rotate, and laterally bend the head. The forward head carriage can lead to many problems including chronic pain, headaches, numbness from nerve compression, and difficulty with breathing correctly.
