Thanks to hours sitting at our computers and driving our cars, rounded shoulders and forward head posture are problems for up to 90% of people. Not only is “text neck” unsightly, it can actually cause a bunch of health problems and hurt athletic performance.
Physical therapist Rick Kaselj has created a program called Forward Head Posture Fix. It claims it will help improve your forward head posture and rounded shoulders in just a few minutes a day. I have serious computer neck so I gave the program a try. So this Forward Head Posture Fix review is based partly on my own experience.
What My Review Is Based On:
- I purchased the program, read the ebook, watched the instructional videos, and now I do the routine regularly
- I read through research about common postural problems for people who work at desks and drive cars (in other words basically everybody)
About Rick Kaselj
Rick Kaselj is a personal trainer, exercise therapist and kinesiologist. He is also the founder of Exercises For Injuries, a web resource for recovering from injuries, dealing with pain and improving posture.
According to his website, he began working as a trainer and exercise therapist but wasn't getting the results he wanted for his clients using mainstream exercises and programs. So he now does his own research and comes up with programs for correcting common pains and injuries.
How Forward Head Posture Fix Works
The Forward Head Posture Fix manual first explains how you can self-assess how good your head posture is currently. This will give you a starting point to measure your progress.
You will do a sequence of movements, static stretches, a breathing exercise and self massage for about 10 minutes each day. The movements are simple and you can learn how to do them from the instructional videos you get. That's pretty much it – just 10 minutes a day. Even if you only use it a few days a week you will still see a benefit.
But you have to do the exercises in order, and you should do them all together. Rick Kaselj says the sequence is the key to the program working properly. Doing a few stretches and movements randomly won't have nearly the effect.
There are alternatives for each of the 11 exercises that he shows you in the videos. You can swap in any of the alternatives if you feel like it. I never tried any of the alternative exercises because it seemed like the main exercises were already working well, but I might try them at some point to mix things up.
You'll notice improvement from day 1, and major improvement after a couple weeks. And I don't mean just improvements in your posture – you literally feel better after doing your 10 minutes of exercises. I continue to use Forward Head Posture Fix to this day and I feel better immediately afterward every time I do the sequence.

What I Liked About Forward Head Posture Fix

What I Didn't Like About Forward Head Posture Fix
- The self-assessment is a little hard to do by yourself. It helps if someone can take a picture of you.
- It may not work for people with really severe forward head posture. (He explains how to tell if that's you.) But those are only rare cases.
