Corrective Exercise Strategies for the Forward Head and Neck

Presented by Dr. Evan Osar ,  Chiropractic Physician; Developer of the Integrative Movement Specialist™ certification

Many older clients present with the forward head and shoulder posture. What’s more important than the posture itself is how this alignment impacts function. The forward head and shoulder posture dramatically impacts range of motion in both the neck and shoulder as well as impacts the ability to optimally use the shoulder and upper limb. The great news is that by helping the older adult develop a more optimal and efficient posture and movement strategy, the health and fitness professional can be instrumental in helping individuals regain health, vitality, and improve their quality of life. 

Live Presentation:
