How we sit or stand greatly affects our posture. Poor posture is a source of continuous stress compromising our spine. This could cause deterioration of vertebra over time due to poor circulation and may also result in chronic fatigue and early exhaustion of muscles. Strain of a bad posture may lead to chronic neck, shoulder or back pain.
Most of the common reasons for a bad posture in everyday lives are; sitting and working on desks or computers for long hours, tilting the head or slouching the head forward while using cell phones, slouching while driving or travelling in a train or plane, prolonged use of heavy backpacks, previous injuries to neck, shoulder or back and use of improper shoes.
