Upper Crossed Syndrome
UCS is a neurological disorder that occurs primarily in girls and women who may be more prone to suffer from the condition. It affects the muscles of these body areas, causing them to become tight or rigid on one side while they are floppy on the opposite side with poor mobility overall. UCS typically appears between 3-12 years old but can occur at any time during adulthood due to trauma or overuse injuries sustained through sports such as tennis, squash, basketball, and gymnastics.
The Upper Crossed Syndrome occurs when muscle tone becomes uneven despite posture being good.
What are the Causes?
A poor posture can be caused by any of the above. Poor postures are common and happen to even those who exercise on a regular basis, not just people using electronic devices. Many people don’t realize how significant these activities really can be, but they do have consequences that warrant consideration before engaging in them for long periods of time or without breaks as is often done today.
A bad posture also has other effects on your body: it causes pressure on certain regions which may lead to pain if taken too far, and it increases chances of developing conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome due to prolonged sitting with little movement
