This book intend to provide evaluation forward neck posture.Forward head posture or the anterior displacement of head relative to the thorax is a common postural deviation seen in normal subjects. The causes for forward head posture may be attributed to poor postural sense, muscle fatigue or weakness, use of bifocals, dysfunction of cervical spine etc. Self-correction exercises like cervical retraction exercises and isometric neck extensor exercises are more frequently used. So this study attempts to compare the effectiveness of cervical retraction exercises versus isometric neck extensor exercises on forward head posture.A cervical retraction exercise is more effective over isometric neck extensors exercises for the correction of forward head posture over six week in terms of relative improvement.
