Unless you’re actively working on maintaining good posture, or improving posture, posture tends to deteriorate with age. 

Some of the health risks associated with poor posture include heartburn, indigestion, incontinence, constipation. 

Poor posture can also lead to neck, shoulder, and back pain.
