    Have you seen, or do you know someone with forward head posture? You know, when you look at someone from the side and their head is sticking out in front of their shoulders. Did you know this type of posture is one of the most common perpetuating factors of fibromyalgia?1,3,4 This type of posture is measurable on x-ray, and clearly visable when looking at someones posture from the side. If your external auditory meataus (EAM) or ear hole, is not over the center of the shoulder when looking at your posture from the side, you have forward head posture (FHP).
