This condition is called length-tension relationship. When you are slouched, the muscles at the front of your chest are in a short position. The muscles in your back will be in a lengthened position. These positions cause break down.
2) When you sit in the same position for long hours, it causes strain on your neck and back muscles. As a result, you get bad posture.
