Causes of Rounded Back

A rounded back can be caused by several factors, including long hours of deskwork, which strain the back and neck muscles, leading to posture deterioration. Additionally, using a desk and chair of improper height forces one into an awkward posture, contributing to the development of a rounded back. Stress and tension also play a role, as they increase body stiffness, particularly in the neck and shoulders. Prolonged tension can shorten the muscles on the front side of the body, causing a rounded back.

Self-Diagnosis: Is Your Deskwork Posture Correct?

  • Adjust your chair height so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Use a footrest if the desk is too high.
  • Ensure that your desk is at a height allowing your arms to rest without raising your shoulders.
  • Place your monitor at or slightly below eye level and directly in front of you, with the top of the monitor at eye level, to avoid tilting your head.
  • Your keyboard and mouse should be positioned to allow your elbows to bend at a 90-degree angle with wrists straight.
  • Sit back in your chair with a straight back and shoulders pulled back to avoid slouching.
  • The screen should be approximately an arm's length away to prevent straining your neck and eyes.

Yoga Poses for Improving Posture

The Mountain Pose is an ideal basic yoga pose for posture alignment. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms down with palms facing forward, and while taking deep breaths, lengthen the spine. This pose helps balance the body and promotes a natural posture.

Child's Pose (Balasana):

The Child's Pose effectively relaxes the muscles in the back and neck. Sit on your heels with your knees bent, fold your upper body forward, and rest your forehead on the ground. Extend your arms alongside your body or stretch them forward to relax. This pose elongates the spine and eases tension.

Cow Face Pose (Gomukhasana):

The Cow Face Pose is particularly effective for stretching the shoulders and chest, aiding in the improvement of rounded back posture. Sit with your legs crossed, bring one arm behind your back and the other arm overhead, and try to clasp your hands together at the center of your back. This pose increases shoulder flexibility and opens up the chest.

Benefits of Correct Posture

Maintaining proper posture is extremely important for health. Firstly, good posture keeps the spine in the correct position, preventing back and neck pain. Additionally, proper posture improves breathing, helping to increase the intake of oxygen into the body. This leads to higher energy levels and overall health improvement. Moreover, good posture can aid in digestion. Poor postures like slouching can compress the digestive organs, leading to indigestion or constipation. Maintaining correct posture can reduce these issues. Also, good posture positively impacts confidence and self-image. Standing up straight can help project more confidence and leave a positive impression on others.
