For many patients the forward head posture can cause a lot of neck pain. But you cannot just stop there, the effects of forward head posture or FHP are far reaching: shoulder pain, headaches, mid back pain, and low back pain can all be cause of FHP.
Your body functions as a kinetic chain and when something is affected at the top of your body such as in your head and neck it can affect the lower body as well such as your Low back and your mid back.
With this posture the head moves forward and this shift the center of gravity for the body. The body compensates and the upper body drifts backwards. Furthermore, this Upper body shift can cause the hips to tilt forward.
This is the reason why FHP can cause pain and all parts of the body.
