A lifetime of poor posture can start a progression of symptoms such as:
– Fatigue: With poor posture, the muscles have to work extra hard just to hold you up. You waste energy just moving, leaving you without the extra energy you need to feel good.
– Tight, achy muscles in the neck, back, arms and legs: By this stage, there may be a change in your muscles and ligaments and you may have a stiff and tight painful feeling. More than 80% of neck and back problems are the result of tight and achy muscles brought on by years of bad posture.
– Joint stiffness and pain: You may be at risk for “wear and tear” arthritis, or what is termed degenerative osteoarthritis. Poor posture and limited mobility increase the likelihood of this condition in later years.
