Hello. Im trying to have a good posture but it always seems like my head is reaching forward. Im also having shoulders and neck pain. What can I do?

Scoliosis: A forward head/neck posture in a 20 year old female is most likely compensation from scoliosis in the back (thoracic spine). The pain in your neck and shoulder could be from this as well. Discuss with your doctor. Referal to a specialist is advised if this is im fact the problem you have.
