Forced postures

Published:  01/12/2015

Forced postures are postures in which the body is not in a natural position and in which tension is caused in different parts of the body. Static postures, that is, when a position is maintained over a very prolonged period of time, are also regarded as forced postures.

Forced postures, aggravated by exerting force, handling loads or working at very high rates, can cause musculoskeletal injuries.
