Consequences of Poor Posture
Kyphosis and Organ Disorder
Kyphosis is the technical term for the forward rounding of your upper back – the type of extreme rounding that might be called round back or hunchback. The condition is most common in older women, although it can occur at any age.
Mild kyphosis may lead to few problems outside of minor discomfort and appearance issues, but due to the positioning of the body in this abnormal position, severe cases can affect one’s lungs, nerves, and other tissues and organs. This will lead to major problems, and extreme cases (Hyper Khyphosis) can require surgery.
This is only one of many potential problems related to bad posture.
