How to Detect Forward Head Posture (FHP)

FHP is fairly easy to detect. Have someone look at you from the side.  Look up at the ceiling, down at the floor and straight ahead. Then have the person draw an imaginary line up through the shoulder. The line should extend up through the hole of the ear. Ideally the head should sit on top of the shoulders like a golf  ball sits on a tee. Remember for every inch your head is forward past that imaginary line you are adding approximately10 lbs. of weight to your spine.
