When was the last time your mother told you to stand up straight? I heard it constantly, not from my mother, but from my Grandfather who threatened to tie my shoulders back to keep them from slouching. At 12 years old I couldn’t imagine why it mattered. 22 years later, I think I finally understand.
Slouching shoulders can produce all kinds of pain, but the most common symptoms are torn rotator cuffs, neck pain, migraines, a variety of hand and wrist ailments, and the one symptom 75% of all Americans can relate to- back pain.
