Effects Poor Posture Has On Health
Increased Head And Neck Pain
Individuals with bad posture have increased head and neck pain. The body is equipped to carry the weight of the head on the neck, but when the neck is pushed or slumped forward, it increases the amount of pressure placed on the neck muscles and nerves resulting in headaches and neck pain. Chronic bad posture can lead to damage of the neck muscles. It is important to understand that depending on how severe the damage to the neck muscles and nerves, pain may become chronic despite engaging in good posture techniques once damage occurs. As such, it is important to be mindful of good posture before such damage occurs to avoid pain in the future.
