Monitoring your posture is the most important step to prevention and should be a life long habit.
Here are some tips on how to use T-Tapp techniques to correct this common posture problem:
- Ears need to be aligned over your shoulders and hips, while keeping the chin from jutting forward; this neutral position distributes the weight of your head throughout your spine. Keep that chin back, too. Strive to do this all the time; walking, driving, standing or sitting at the computer
- Curl your core, lift the ribs (your shoulders will naturally lower and level, check it in a mirror) Your upper back should be relatively flat (not curved forward), and your chest is curved outward (not flat or sunken in between your shoulders).
- Lift ribs (think breastbone to ceiling) and tighten the lats to keep the body from tilting forward.
- On all flatback moves, keep the ears in line with the shoulders, do not let the head hang towards the floor, this puts pressure on the posterior neck muscles.
- Shift the weight into the heels before each movements so that the ears, shoulders, hips and ankles are all in one line.
