What causes bad posture?
“Bad posture is happening increasingly early because of our poor baby furniture, and then poor sitting habits in schools,” says Gokhale. “As children, we sit so many hours a day, we become rigid. And that carries over into adulthood.”
Lishchyna notes that posture can also change depending on your age, environment and lifestyle. “You see kids carrying heavy backpacks, or adults walking around with a heavy computer case over one shoulder,” she says. “Unfortunately, people don’t always notice that their posture is incorrect. Over time, it can lead to a lot of problems.”
