If you get headaches or have neck and shoulder pain, it could be due to the way you are positioning your head. The head is quite heavy and when misaligned can create stress in the cervical vertebrae. This videos gives you cues to help you feel what proper head and neck alignment is like.

Thank you so much!!! I have lots of neck pain and the proper alignment is extremely helpful. Thank you for explaining it and demonstrating it so clearly.

Thank you, David. I have had quite bad neck posture for some years now and it was causing headaches - I was slouching exactly as you demonstrated in the video. I will be practicing straightening up with awareness throughout the day now. Thank you again :)

My husband had neck surgery (level 4 fusion) two weeks ago. Watching your video I noticed how your optimal neck position is exactly the position that his neck brace keeps. It is amazing how you can feel the muscles in the back of the neck tense up when your head is too far forward. Both of us will be using these tips to prevent future neck pain. Also, your comments on majority of neck movement being C1 to C2 is what our neurosurgeon told us. Good advice.
