Abstract
Forward head posture (FHB) is considered a widely spread postural disorder related to abnormalities in musculoskeletal balance. Purpose: This study was conducted to investigate the effect of forward head posture on shoulder proprioception in young adults. Participants and methods: Thirty subjects of both gender with age ranges from 18 to 26 assigned into two equal groups, Group A; subjects having forward head posture with craniovertebral angle <50○ and Group B; subject have normal and good posture with craniovertebral angle >50○; photographic analysis measures the craniovertebral angle while isokinetic biodex system used for measuring shoulder active repositioning error. Result: The study revealed that there were no significant differences between the two groups in right shoulder active repositioning accuracy where p-value is 0.189. Conclusion: FHP has no effect on shoulder active repositioning error.

Key words: Forward head posture, Shoulder repositioning error, Isokinetic biodex system, Photographic analysis.
