Sitting all day at desks causes constant compression of the discs in the low back and tightening of the hamstrings.

These postures add the pressure gravity normally stresses the spine causing people to feel and look older than they are. Add to that, poor sleeping positions, laying on a couch, carrying pocket books or brief cases on one shoulder and other contributing factors, poor posture is at epidemic levels.
