“Forward curvature of the spine (or bad posture) places the weight of the head and shoulders forward and downwards, causing:
Strain on the spine – contributing to neck and backaches
Compressing the chest – contributing to chest pains
Increasing pressure on lungs and respiratory muscles – contributing to breathlessness
Compressing the air in the chest – contributing to postural hypotension, faintness, tiredness and/or physical fatigue
Compressing the stomach – causing stomach pains/digestive difficulties.”
Thankfully these side effects can be combated through developing and maintaining good posture. If you’d like more information on how you can improve yours, please read our article: Perfecting your Posture .
