study by chiropractors about AHC (=FHP, anterior head carriage) http://www.logan.edu/mm/files/LRC/Senior-Research/2012-Dec-01.pdf
“This study found no correlation between neck disability index scores pain and anterior head carriage. Some participants showed significant AHC but were asymptomatic while others were symptomatic without significant AHC and still others were asymptomatic without significant AHC. Future studies examining cervical spine posture as an etiology of neck pain should focus on environmental factors, age, and occupational factors. “

Social Media: Twitcleaner had to close!

I’ve recommended Twitcleaner.com in the past, but since Twitter changed the gameplan, they can’t operate any longer.

www.twitblock.org identifies spam, too… just not as nicely as Twitcleaner used to. Unfortunately Twitter changed the rules, so it’s not possible any longer.
