Studies show that loss of cervical curve and poor posture often lead to progressive disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, tension on the spinal cord and nerve roots, as well as anterior head translation. In fact, a translation of even a single inch may increase work for the posterior neck muscles by a factor of ten.
