Effects of Poor Posture

Having a poor posture can lead to be prone to injure the spine; have neck, shoulder and back pain; imbalance and increased risk of falling, problems with digestion and difficulty for breathing.

Diana Solares, Physical Therapist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains poor posture can make the spine more fragile, because it is not functioning the way it should be and it puts you at an increased risk for injury. She says other effects are that your glute muscles and butt muscles tend to weaken from compressing them all day by sitting.
