If poor medical and mental health are not enough to worry about for future generations there is another physical health problem looming for teens and children; a problem that many adults who have sat behind a computer for hours are already facing today. The cause is mostly posture induced. Bad posture from hunching or leaning forward at the computer can have severe consequences, taking its toll on the thoracic and cervical spine areas of the body. What repeated failure of inline posture creates in the upper back is called a kyphosis.
A kyphosis gives the appearance of a hump in the upper back region and a forward neck deviation which may move the chin forward past the chest and with age this problem will most often have more severe consequences for ones physical health.
Many people have a kyphosis problem today but do not realize that they do. Often the diagnosis goes unrecognized and untreated. The problem can be reversed when attention gives focus to the situation and the proper rehabilitation or exercises are done to reverse the kyphosis. Of course the best solution is to stay posture perfect and use ergonomic methods to avoid having this problem but good posture seems to be a lacking discipline in our society today.
