Poor Posture At Your Work Place

A bad posture at work most commonly affects the neck, back, and shoulders. Sitting in a poor position in the workplace can cause back pain, workplace stress, and strain injury, which results in reduced productivity, poor health, and low morale. It also misaligns the spine causing total damage to the backbone.
