Posture is the window to the spine and poor posture can indicate there is a problem with a person’s spine and nervous system. One of the first indicators of poor posture is a slouching or anterior head posture. This poor posture reduces lymphatic drainage in the neck and will cause more strain on the posterior neck muscles. It also increases the weight bearing on the discs and can lead to premature arthritis of the neck. There are many causes of this type of posture including car accidents, sports injuries, working with computers and loss of bone density.
