Do I have forward neck posture?

I'm wondering if it appears that my cervical part of my spine is deformed? From the side, it looks like my neck is bulging forward while from a frontal view, it looks very short and stubby, despite the fact that I'm 5'8'' and have a BMI of 18.7. I read that with forward head posture, the neck looks long from the side and very short from the front. Is there a surgery to correct it? I frequently have a stiff neck...


  • It does not look bad... Are you getting a lot of pain or just stiffness? Have you seen a doctor and or physical therapist? You can always change your posture, tip your chin down and put your head back, straighten up your back. It will hurt for a while at first but over time you will get used to it.

  • Only x-rays would be able to show if your cervical spine was showing any lordosis. If your having issues with your neck, make a appointment with your PCP, and speak with them.
