Dangers of Not Correcting Bad Posture

Published May 5th, 2021 by Dr. Hoder

Sitting down all day is not good for any of us, but it is more commonplace now than in generation’s past. Unfortunately, this can lead to some serious posture problems. We often sit forward, looking at the screen of a laptop or desktop computer, trying to get our work done, especially now since a lot of people are working from home. However, if your sitting posture is less than ideal, it can lead to significant back pain. 

Sitting with the Wrong Posture Can Lead to Lasting Pain

If you notice that your back hurts, but you remain sitting, it could lead to issues that your body could struggle with for years to come. Taking the time to treat the issue immediately would help, but most of us are simply too busy to notice how long the discomfort has gone on. This means your back has to adjust, and that could lead to muscle or joint pain, a hunched appearance, or chronic back pain

So, What Is Proper Sitting Posture? 

When sitting down for extended periods of time, you want to ensure that your back is straight and that your lumbar is supported. You should take regular breaks where you get up, move around, stretch, and even find something else to do for short periods when you can. Giving your back the ability to move around can help decrease bad posture dangers to some degree.
