Anterior carriage of the neck – also known as a forward head posture. A position many people suffer from due to poor posture as they tend to spend a lot of their day reading, texting or looking at a computer screen. This is when the head is not properly aligned with the neck and shoulders, resulting in the head leaning or tilting forward. This then causes the shoulders to round inwards and may begin to cause pain in the neck as there is an increase in weight and stress on the neck.
