The Optimal Ergonomics For Any Gaming Setup
Prolonged periods of sitting with poor posture can disrupt this balance. Traditional gamer posture of a curved back, slumped shoulders, and forward head places uneven force on the spine. Disc pressures can double, leading to weakening, thus increasing the likelihood the gel-like substance inside can bulge out.
Extended, abnormal sitting accelerates wear and tear in the small joints of the back, leading to instability and early arthritis. Instability increases the strain on the surrounding structures, which results in pain that can travel far from the area of dysfunction, leading to misdiagnosis. Furthermore, inactivity causes blood to pool in the legs and increases a person’s chances of developing obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
