Can we blame the couch, please?
We, as a generation has become sedentary in our lifestyle. It is estimated that in America, only one out of three children is active every day! The same survey indicates that only 5% of adults in the whole of America practice some form of physical activity each day. Grimmer is the statistics concerning young adults.
While 80 percent of adults do not meet the standard for aerobic exercise, 85% of adolescents tip the scale with absolutely no form of physical activity.
Netflix, video games, handheld devices et al. have started taking a toll on our body. We can see it in a generation of people who are losing not just their time but their posture as well.
Here are the likely problems that people with bad posture face:
Bad posture can lead to misalignment in the spine leading to excruciating pain in the knees and ankles often accelerating the onset of arthritis.
It can also affect the circulation of blood efficiently in the body, often leading to a painful condition called varicose veins.
Bad posture is the number one reason for fatigue, stress building, and has a direct impact on your moods.
Not maintaining the right posture can result in musculoskeletal dysfunctions, often ending in hospitalization.
Poor neck and head posture for a long continuous period can result in a painful joint condition called Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome or TJS where the jaws pop, lock, cramp or have spasms culminating in a severe form of pain and chewing difficulties.
The diaphragm can be affected with a bad back and neck posture, often leading to compression of lungs and overcrowding of vital organs leading to breathing inefficiently. As a result, a host of other related problems can manifest.
Shoulder and neck pain
The weakening of the pelvic floor muscles leading to less stamina and affecting sex life and the ability to have orgasms.

Are posture correctors the panacea for bad postures?
Experts are divided on the opinion that long term wearing of posture correctors can be a good idea in the long run. While it is a good idea to keep them on for a couple of hours every day especially when on the desk or browsing your devices, or at the gym; wearing them for the whole day is not advisable. This is for the simple reason that the body muscles begin becoming weak and start to depend on the brace for their strength. Moderation is the key thus.
