While having good posture is a great goal, most posture correctors don't help you achieve it. In fact, some of these devices do more harm than good. This is because your body comes to rely on these devices to support you, especially if you wear them for extended periods of time. This can lead to relaxation and weakening of the core muscles that you normally use to achieve better posture. But our posture corrector is designed and developed by a professional group and is a good helper to help you improve your posture.
Correct posture can improve your physical and mental health
Experts say good posture is important. Standing correctly can reduce stress on the spine, neck and shoulders. It also reduces neck and back pain—a huge problem in the U.S., with about a quarter of people reporting back pain at least 1 day out of 3 months. Many of us also experience "text neck," which is caused by staring at a screen with our heads down (average weight: 11 pounds) for extended periods of time.
There is also a link between posture and mental health. Research shows that people with depression and anxiety tend to bend inward or curl up. On the other hand, standing up straight can help you feel better.
In addition to a better mood, the benefits of good posture include:
- Avoid irreversible damage to the spine
- Reduce the risk of osteoarthritis
- Improve flexibility and joint movement
- Reduce the risk of falls by improving balance
- Gives your lungs more room to expand, helping you breathe easier
- Other Ways to Improve Posture
One of the benefits offered by posture equipment is to increase your awareness of your posture and whether you need to fix it. But experts say the best way to improve your posture is through core-strengthening exercises like yoga, as well as correct standing and sitting in your daily life.
Some simple tips include:
Sit with your chin parallel to the floor and your knees and feet pointing forward.
If you work at a desk, check with your employer or check online advice for creating a posture-friendly and ergonomic workspace. Also, be sure to get up and stretch often; many experts recommend moving every hour.
When standing, keep your shoulders down and back, your spine neutral (not bent or arched), your hips even, your knees forward, your abs tight, your feet evenly weighted, and your feet shoulder-width apart.
