With bad posture standing/sitting etc can hip ligaments and spine become hypermobile?

With bad posture standing/sitting etc can hip ligaments and spine become hypermobile?

Not likely: While it is better to try to practice good posture, it is not generally felt that having poor posture causes any structural problems in the spine.

It therefore can potentially be present at any joint, even if the symptoms/sequelae do not present all at the same time. Therefore, the laxity is a condition inherent to each joint ; does not "spread" like an infection or cancer. ...Read more
