Common Posture Problems
Forward Head Posture
Forward head posture is the most common postural defect found in computer operators. (10)
Round shoulders is distinguished by the hunched over appearance it creates, and it is poor posture that is often associated with office workers and computer operators.
Rotated hips can be caused by holding a poor position for a long period of time, such as sitting at your desk, twisting to write as well as looking at the computer.
In severe cases, long term bad posture can lead to Scoliosis, a condition that results in the spine twisting from side to side, instead of running in a straight line from top to bottom. Depending in the severity, Scoliosis of the spine can have a detrimental impact on vital organs, such as your heart, liver and kidneys.
