The 42 pound head
Last time we looked the “42 pound head”, the situation where faulty or out-of-line head positioning adds considerably to the work our neck muscles must do to support our head. We talked about how the apparent “weight” of the head increases by 8lbs for every inch that it is held forward from the so-called anatomically correct position. In this post we’re going to consider how someone with this problem might bring their head into a more comfortable alignment with gravity.
