Abstract:   (202 Views)
Background: The rising popularity of media devices, such as smartphones and computers has increased forward head posture in individuals. The current study aimed to compare static and dynamic postural stability between individuals with and without forward head posture.
Methods: In total, 15 male students with normal posture (mean±SD age: 24±4 years, height: 173±6 cm, & weight: 70±6 kg) and 15 male students with forward head posture (mean±SD age: 25±3 years, height:178±7 cm, & weight:  68±5 kg) were selected purposively according to the craniovertebral angle. Biodex stability system was used to measure static and dynamic postural stability.
Results: The obtained results indicated a significant difference between the study groups respecting dynamic postural stability in open and closed eyes conditions (P 0.05); however, no significant difference was observed concerning static postural stability in open and closed eyes (P 0.05).
Conclusion: Individuals with forward head posture performed weaker in dynamic postural stability, compared to the healthy ones; as a result, forward head posture is considered as a factor disturbing dynamic postural stability.
