Experts say poor posture may cause more than just back pain

Pain in the back is one of the most frequent factors for why employees miss work across the world, and one of the most common causes of disability. Slouching and bending badly, prolonged sitting in an awkward position, can affect the spine quite a lot. These habits can increase how rapidly joints degrade and cause stress to rapidly accumulate. The issue can even lead to heart problems. A study in London over twenty years showed men who reported chronic bad posture or height loss had a nearly two-thirds greater chance of coronary disease.

Key Takeaways:

  • One common cause for back pain may actually be poor posture. But one London study suggests that poor posture could have other effects.
  • Posture deviation may take place among men who commonly have poor posture. They might also experience height loss over the course of their lives.
  • These men were also at a higher risk of developing coronary heart disease too. The London study followed thousands of men over the course of 20 years.

“A London study followed 4,000 men for 20 years and found the men who experienced posture deviation and height loss had a 64 percent higher risk of developing coronary heart disease.”
