THE IMPACT OF BAD POSTURE ON YOUR CHILD'S HEALTH
Updated: Jan 26, 2022
We all heard it growing up..."sit up straight!" While we thought it was just our parents and teachers nagging us about appearing lazy or disengaged, there was actually a health component to their request.
The impact of cell phones and gaming on the physical health problems of our children only seems to be worsening. According to a recent UK study, up to 10% of 10-year-old children have signs associated with bad backs and 9% already have at least one degenerative disc.
These are all related to bad posture brought on from too much cell phone and gaming screen time.
Bad posture can have several impacts on the body including:
Shoulder, neck, and back pain
Degenerative disc disease
