Facts: Often, poor posture develops because of accidents or falls. But bad posture can also develop from environmental factors or bad habits. This means that you have control.

Today, posture-related problems are increasing:

  • As we become a society that watches more television than any previous generation;

  • As we become a more electronic society, with more and more people working at sedentary desk jobs or sitting in front of computer terminals;

  • As more and more cars are crowding our roads, resulting in accidents and injuries;

  • And as we drive in cars with poorly designed seats.
