One way to reduce forward head posture is to perform cervical retraction exercises. Take your right index finger and middle finger together and push on your chin in the backward direction. Pretend for a moment that your head is like a bowling ball- that slides back and forth. Now slide your fingers back and hold for 15 seconds. Release and then do this again 2-3 times. Do these cervical repetitions every day until you can work up to 10-12 a day.
There are also special cervical pillow supports that you can use to reduce forward head posture: The Cervical traction neck pillow is an effective support that can be used at night to keep the proper c curve in the neck. During the day, you can do cervical neck traction using a home traction unit such as the cervical traction posture pump 1000 or the Pronex pneumatic traction unit. It is important to do this neck traction lying face up, following the proper traction guidelines.
