I was at a family barbeque a couple of weekends ago when I heard a very familiar question, “Uncle Chris, my shoulder hurts.  Can you fix it?”
 
This question was quickly followed by my 23 year old nephew asking, “Do you think that this could this be the start of a Repetitive Strain Injury?”
 
I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised that at his age he was concerned about his long term physical health and though he didn’t realize it, improving his posture.

Rounded Shoulders Can Lead to Health Problems

Like most of the readers of my age or older we grew up listening to our parents telling us not to slouch as we would get rounded shoulders.  I can still remember my grandmother telling me to stick my chest out, pull my shoulders back and stomach in.  Regardless of who said it, good posture really is important not just for our appearance but for our health.
 If you go to any large gathering these days you will quickly notice that many people have rounded or slouched shoulders.
