Can bad posture affect blood pressure?
According to science, poor posture can increase your blood pressure. As such, poor posture and blood pressure are neurologically linked. As the body's posture tilts forward, it increases the stress on the heart and lungs. The human body is made to stand on two feet and we are designed to stand all the way up every day. Any less in the amount of time in this can adversely affect the heart and other organs.
According to research, slumping in a seated position and slouching in a standing position can lead to high blood pressure. Also, the forward rolling of the shoulders and/or rotating of the back can affect the breathing. According to Okouchi, “the neck has certain receptors that can actually affect blood pressure.”
