Time for a corrective exercise for Forward Head Posture. FHP can lead to shoulder problems, neck pain and and vocal fold strain. Our own vocal expert, Nicola Redman, can tell you more about releasing your voice but here is a little start in the right direction.
This can be done while standing OR sitting:
Perform a chin tuck by keeping your chin parallel to the floor and drawing your head backwards. This turns on the muscles in the front of your neck, so you might feel a sensation there.
You might also feel stretching in the back of the neck and at the base of the skull which is okay.
Do not push through pain.
Repeat at least 5 times.
