How Posture Correctors Work
What all posture correctors have in common is that they are designed to address the muscle imbalances that arise when we are in unhealthy, fixed postures for extended periods of time. While the muscles in the front of the chest (pectoralis) tend to tighten, the muscles in the upper back, including the middle traps and rhomboids, are likely to be overstretched. Orthotics can help activate muscles that haven't been fully exercised and give them guidance on where they need to go.
Proprioception helps you move freely without having to stop and think about every movement. It allows you to close your eyes and touch your nose with your fingers, walk down stairs without looking at every step, or sit in a chair without looking under your hips.
Orthotics allow us to build on proprioception, making us more acutely aware of what good posture feels like and what we need to do to achieve it. If I start sluggish, the posture corrector will let me know I'm in the wrong position so I can pull my shoulders back or tighten my lower back. Ideally, eventually this correction will become second nature.
How to choose a posture corrector
There's no data on which type of aligner works best, and Rodriguez says any aligner can be beneficial if you use it correctly in your everyday life (no, you shouldn't wear one to bed). If you're ready to give it a try, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Does it target your weak spots? There are different posture correctors for different parts of the body. The most common are your shoulders, cervicothoracic junction (where your upper back meets your neck), and your lumbar spine. If you're not sure where your weakness is, take a look at your posture from the waist up to pinpoint the source of your listlessness. Is your back arching too much? Try braces with lumbar support. Are your shoulders hunched or your neck leaning forward? Consider a method that helps keep your shoulders down and back. If you do get lost, Rodriguez recommends seeing a physical therapist to help you choose the one that fits your needs and focus on the areas that need support the most.
Does it fit comfortably? You want breathable materials that feel good on your skin and don't cause chafing. It shouldn't contort your body into unnatural positions or immobilize you too rigidly. "If it's uncomfortable, it's not going to work because you're not going to use it," Rodriguez said.
Can I use it myself? You don't want a device that requires a PhD to operate. You want to be able to put it on, adjust and take it off without having to rely on anyone else to help you tighten the strap or take it off you.
Does it look ok? See how it fits under your clothes. You will most likely want to hide the pose corrector.
Is the price right? Posture correctors with technical components tend to be more expensive than other types.
