An unfortunate potential result of extended periods of time sitting behind their computer screen, McKenzie’s postural syndrome can affect muscles, joints and tendons. Studies have shown that this condition is especially present in people under 30 because they are less likely to seek consultation or care for any potential lower back pain/issues. The average workplace setup encourages forward lurching necks/heads, severely curved upper back and heavy pressure on the lower back. This leads to deepened curves in the thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine that can result in pain and discomfort.
