It can be reasonably argued that a person’s posture will indicate the health of one’s nervous system and their spine. Slouching and a forward leaning head posture restricts lymphatic drainage in the neck and will cause more strain on posterior neck muscles. Offset posture & an imbalanced weight bearing on your discs can lead to premature arthritis of the neck.

Another problem connected with long periods at the computer is a forward tilt of the pelvis; this causes excessive anterior weight bearing, an increase in the lumbar lordosis (lower curvature of the spine) and associated muscle weakness.

A continued sitting/bending forward position can result in chronic lower back pain, sciatica, muscle pain, leg weakness, circulation problems of your lower extremities and more. Abnormal spinal weight distribution from this type of posture can also lead to premature spinal arthritis of your discs and joints, plus loss of movement and disability.
