Correct Posture Neutralises Spinal Stress - Episode 2
Posture Misalignment: Slouching
The term “slouching” is often refer to unsightly and lazy posture characterised by shoulders and head bent forward. But slouching can cause major health problems over time, including headaches, pulled muscles, and back pain. Prolonged slouching also leads to musculoskeletal stress on both your vertebrae and the discs between the vertebrae.
Slouching: Dowager’s Hump or Postural Kyphosis
Excessive curvature of the spine due to slouching can eventually cause a visible hump-like appearance at the back of the neck termed a “dowager’s hump” or in the upper back where it is called “postural kyphosis”. If left uncorrected, it can increase the risk of having osteoporosis and spinal cord compression.
