• The Question that we should all be asking is…
• Where is the ONLY place in the body that
could physically AND physiologically affect the
function of every other system of the body?

• 1-Forward Head Posture(FHP) is result of losing the
normal curve of the neck, This distorted posture will
cause a mechanical block of optimal function.
• 2-FHP leads to abnormal motion of the cervical
vertabrae, which is necessary for endorphin production.
(reduction of pain stimuli) With inadequate endorphin
production, many otherwise non-painful sensations are
experienced as pain.
Dr. Cailliet cont…
• FHP can deplete lung capacity by as much as 30%.
Shortness of breath and depleted oxygen levels leads to
heart and blood vascular disease.
• FHP causes the entire GI tract to be affected, particularly
the large intestine. Loss of good bowel function and
evacuation are a common sequel associated with this
postural weakness which leads to toxic effects and
disease in the body.
• FHP pulls the entire spine and body out of alignment
making it rigid and reduce all body motions.
