What Causes Rounded Shoulder Posture?
Round shoulders are not a medical issue, but a sign of poor posture. What’s more, there is no reason to feel like you have to hide this postural misstep from others around you because it will only make them point it out further!
If you spend hours of your day in this position, either reading or using a computer. After many days it is possible to develop rounded shoulders. It takes time for our body to get used to the activity. This would be the result of spending too much time in one place. The shoulder starts feeling sore when they are not used often enough and rested. When the muscles become overly tired they will naturally drop into a more relaxed posture that doesn’t lift as well. Which could lead to injury or pain if continued long-term due to overuse problems associated with performing those activities excessively without sufficient rest periods.
Over time, your shoulders may develop rounded edges as certain muscles in the back and shoulders get tight and other muscles become long and weak. To change this you need to be mindful of sitting position and posture. Which will likely require some exercise or stretching targeted at specific muscle groups that are too weak.
