Head Posture Can Affect Nerves.

Head Posture Can Affect Nerves.
Forward head posture is a common problem associated with musculoskeletal pain, but does it also affect the nervous system? A recent study evaluated nerve function in 100 patients with neck and upper extremity problems as well as 34 healthy controls. The researchers found that those with a forward head posture exhibited significant nerve conduction differences in the median and ulnar nerves, both of which extend through the neck to the shoulder and down the arms to the hands and fingers. The findings suggest that persons with forward head posture may be more prone to peripheral entrapments.
