Laptop use with a poor posture. Why you need an ergonomic chair.
Using your Laptop for a long time in wrong posture may be dangerous for your health.
Sitting in a standard chair for prolonged periods of time can definitely cause low back pain or worsen an existing back problem. The main reason behind this is that sitting, in an office chair or in general, is a static posture that increases stress in the back, shoulders, arms, and legs, and in particular, can add large amounts of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs.
Persistently incorrect posture, faulty biomechanical stress, fluctuation between contraction and relaxation of muscles is disturbed. 90% of cervical pain is non-specific. It usually develops slowly through persistent (unilateral) incorrect biomechanical stress. Over time, the stress of poor posture can change the anatomical characteristics of the spine, leading to the possibility of constricted blood vessels and nerves, as well as problems with muscles, discs, and joints. All of these can be major contributors to back and neck pain, as well as headaches, fatigue, and possibly even concerns with major organs and breathing.
