His suggested approach (besides seeing him for like 30 sessions and giving him a ton of $$$) was for me to spend 10 minutes each night hanging my head off the foot of my bed. I get this intuition but I am guessing this is some chiro BS. Thoughts? I am obviously not going back to him but would entertain doing the neck bed thing.
yea fuck most chiros. There's a ton of stuff on Eric Cressey Assess and Correct DVD about a forward tilting head. Wall chin tuck is the first progression, i forgot what's after. You can test if you actually do have a forward head posture yourself; go up to a wall with your back facing it, place your feet about a feet and a half away from the wall, lay back and touch your but to the wall then shoulders, is your neck touching the wall? If it is your neck is in a good position, if not you got a forward tilting mellon.
