Why good posture is important
You may have heard about the many benefits of maintaining good posture. Not only does it give you strength in the area of your body that experiences the most chronic pain, which is your lower back, it also helps reduce tension in your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
But you know good posture can also:
Boost your energy levels
- help you breathe better
- Keeps you in proper form while exercising
- Reduce the chance of injury while doing physical activity
- make you look taller
Yes, practicing and maintaining good posture contributes to your overall health and ease of daily activities.
Most of us understand the importance of good posture, but sometimes we forget to prompt ourselves to sit up straight or maintain a neutral spine.
To solve this problem, many people find relief through posture correctors.
What to look for in a posture corrector
Typing "posture corrector" into the online search bar will return you to the options page. This is great news if you know what you're looking for. Otherwise, it can feel overwhelming.
Here are a few things to consider when deciding which posture corrector is right for you.
encourages muscle activation
There are definitely benefits to being braced with the right bracing. But, overall, bracing is a double-edged sword.
If you keep supporting the spine in a certain position, it can atrophy the spinal muscles and become lazy,, spinal neurosurgeon and chief of the spine at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. and founder of NeuroVella Brain Spa .
With this in mind, the goal of a posture corrector should be to activate the muscles. That's why he recommends the soft brace: it reminds the body and our postural muscles that this is the best position.
Narrowing your search to posture correctors that focus on key areas can improve the effectiveness of your product. The most important postural areas are:
- neck-thoracic junction
- lower back
No matter how effective a posture corrector is, if it's too uncomfortable, people will struggle to wear it. If people don't wear it, the efficacy factor becomes irrelevant.
I find that the most comfortable are also the most effective, as are the soft ones, as they tend to keep the muscles active and prevent atrophy.
easy to use
Posture correctors that provide support but are easily self-adjusting are recommended so that people don't have to rely on others to help them put on, take off, and adjust tension.
Being able to wear the correct posture under or over clothing is also a key feature when choosing the right clothes for you.
Posture correctors come in a variety of styles to support your neck, lower back, or your entire upper body. Make sure you choose a product that fits your needs and targets the areas where you need support most.
