The dangers of wrong sitting posture

When we work or study, maintaining an incorrect sitting posture for a long time may cause great harm to our physical health. Incorrect sitting posture may lead to muscle fatigue, cervical spondylosis, lumbar spondylosis and other problems, and may even lead to chronic diseases.

First, sitting incorrectly can lead to muscle fatigue. When we hold the same posture for a long time, certain parts of the body will be compressed for a long time, causing muscle fatigue. If we maintain an incorrect sitting posture for a long time, such as bending over or looking down at our mobile phone, it will put a lot of burden on the muscles in our neck, back, waist and other parts, resulting in muscle fatigue and soreness.


Secondly, incorrect sitting posture may also lead to cervical spondylosis. When we look down at mobile phones or computers for a long time, the muscles of the neck will be under a great burden, which will cause damage to the cervical spine. If we maintain this incorrect sitting posture for a long time, it will lead to cervical spondylosis. Cervical spondylosis can cause symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, and hand numbness. In severe cases, it may affect our life and work.


In addition, incorrect sitting posture may also lead to lumbar spondylosis. When we bend over for a long time or maintain an incorrect sitting posture, the muscles in the lower back will be compressed, which will cause damage to the lumbar spine. Lumbar spondylosis can cause symptoms such as waist pain and lower limb weakness. In severe cases, it may affect our life and work.


In addition to muscle fatigue, cervical spondylosis, and lumbar spondylosis, improper sitting posture can also cause other health problems. For example, maintaining incorrect sitting posture for a long time may affect our breathing and digestive system. If we keep bending over or bowing our heads for a long time, it will cause the lungs and stomach to be compressed, which will affect breathing and digestion.


In addition, improper sitting posture can also lead to psychological problems. When we sit in an incorrect posture for long periods of time, we experience physical discomfort, which can affect our emotional and mental health. If we are in this state for a long time, it may lead to psychological problems such as anxiety and depression.


In order to avoid the harm caused by incorrect sitting posture, we should pay attention to maintaining the correct sitting posture. The correct sitting posture should be: the body is straight, the feet are flat on the ground, the knees and hips are at a 90-degree angle, and the hands are naturally placed on the knees or on the table. If you need to use a computer or mobile phone for a long time, you should place the device at the correct height to avoid looking down at the screen.


In addition, there are some simple ways we can improve our sitting posture. For example, stand up and move your body every once in a while, or do some simple stretching exercises to relieve muscle fatigue. We can also use some auxiliary tools, such as lumbar pads, foot pads, etc., to improve sitting posture.


In short, maintaining correct sitting posture is very important for our physical health. If you need to sit in an office or study environment for a long time, please pay attention to maintaining a correct sitting posture and pay more attention to your health.
