Do you find yourself slouching and your upper back resembling a camel’s hump? Do you frequently face problems such as neck pain, headaches and lower back pain? If yes, then it’s high time you get your posture right! Maintaining a nice posture might not seem that a big deal but unknowingly you are deteriorating both your health and personality.
People are gradually realizing the importance of maintaining a nice posture. There are various ideas for doing that. Out of all these using a posture corrector is one such thing which is very effective and recommended by health professionals and fitness trainers.
A posture corrector is a device that helps in maintaining the correct posture by controlling the movement of the spine. It improves the standing, sitting and sleeping positions. It is light weight and comfortable. It prevents the slouching of the shoulders and back pain. It not only strengthens the muscles but also makes you calm and reduces stress.
How Does A Posture Corrector Work
The idea of a posture corrector is to help your back maintain an erect position. The muscle tone that has been deteriorated due to continuous sitting at computers for long hours and slouching is maintained. Our bodies adapt to the position that we hold them to. For example, if you do a lot of desk work your back is likely to get rounded and the chest move a bit forward because the soft tissues position themselves in that way.
The posture depends on the mind and muscle connection. If you sit crooked your mind gets the message that it is the normal posture of your body and the body gets aligned to it. The posture corrector pushes the shoulders a bit backward in a way such that the spine is upright.
How It Should Be Used
A posture corrector is not supposed to be worn all day long. It depends on the capacity of the person to wear it. Usually it is recommended to wear them for around 10 days. But for most effective results it should be used for around 30 days. But it is to be worn as long as one gets a satisfactory result. If we talk about wearing it every day, you just need to spare a few minutes for a nice posture. It is advised to be worn for 15 – 30 min. you can take it off beforehand as well if you feel any kind of pain.
