Any alteration in head posture with respect to horizontal ground surface will affect this optimal working range and hence affect the postural stability (Brandt et al 1981).
These results would suggest any pathology of the cervical spine that in the short term results in a more retracted or forward head posture is unlikely to impact on postural stability.
