6 EFFECTS OF POOR POSTURE ON THE BODY

Musculoskeletal Strain

Poor posture can lead to excessive stress on muscles, joints, and ligaments, causing discomfort and musculoskeletal strain.

Slouching or hunching forward compresses the chest cavity, limiting the space available for the lungs to expand fully.

Decreased Lung Capacity

Sitting with poor posture, especially after meals, can compress internal organs, affecting digestion.

Digestive Issues

Improper alignment of the spine may contribute to conditions like acid reflux and indigestion due to the compromised function of the gastrointestinal system.

Incorrect posture may constrict blood vessels, impeding the normal flow of blood throughout the body.

Impaired Circulation

Reduced circulation can contribute to feelings of numbness, tingling, and may affect overall cardiovascular health.

Prolonged poor posture can contribute to the development of chronic musculoskeletal disorders, such as kyphosis, lordosis, and scoliosis.

Increased Risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders

Adopting a slouched posture may lead to increased feelings of fatigue and decreased motivation, while maintaining an upright posture can positively influence mood and energy.
