‘Couch Slouch’ and Lower Back Pain

Low back pain is common today, and ‘couch slouch’ is adding to the prevalence of low back pain.  Sitting in this relaxed posture is creating a bad postural pattern that is not easily corrected.  Some muscles get stretched, some get shortened.  Ligaments stretch to abnormal positions and discs undergo a tremendous amount of stress.  Long-term this can cause inflammation and pain, disc degeneration, sciatica, and spinal arthritis.  Simply, poor posture over time causes damage to the spine.
