Research – The Killer Impact of Forward Leaning Posture

A 20-year University of London study looked at over 4,200 men aged 40-59 and found strong correlation between losing height and mortality. The authors speculated that slumping over postures caused a physical restriction of breathing which significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and respiratory mortality. Link: National Library of Medicine – Height loss in older men: associations with total mortality and incidence of cardiovascular disease.

Women with a jutting forward head posture were found to have almost half again the risk of dying during the course of one 4-year study. Link: National Library of Medicine – Hyperkyphotic posture predicts mortality in older community-dwelling men and women: a prospective study.

Looking at posture can give a tremendous amount of information about how a body is working. Link: National Library of Medicine – Implications for the use of postural analysis as a clinical diagnostic tool: reliability of quantifying upright standing spinal postures from photographic images.

Research shows evidence that poor balance and poor posture can result in pain conditions. Link: National Library of Medicine – People with chronic low back pain have poorer balance than controls in challenging tasks.
