A lot of people suffer with back pain and other issues related to having a bad posture. Having a bad posture causes a lot of health issues that many of us are completely unaware of. Some of these issues include:
Your neck is a very sensitive part of your body and it needs to be taken care of. A poor posture can lead to the muscles in your neck becoming very tight, and this tension will give you headaches. It is usually sitting at a screen that causes this bad posture so stay aware of this when you are next working at a computer or watching tv.
Reduced wearing of joints
Tight muscles and tendons are a result of poor posture, and this causes extreme wearing on your joints. This can lead to a long list of health issues that will only get worse over time so it is crucial that you stay on top of this.
Digestion and circulation
Having a good posture improves your digestion and blood circulation. This can further help to relax your muscles which will help with the other issues that can be caused by a bad posture.
