People looking to correct their posture have more than a few options for assistance in their quest for achieving good posture -- which helps protect your neck and back as a result.
One of these devices is called a posture corrector (also called back brace), which generally makes an effort to retrain your musculature, which, in the end, has the intention of helping wearers maintain their upright, posture-perfect position without exerting much in the realm of effort.
Posture correctors are especially good for people who have to spend a significant amount of time in front of a computer, which can promote muscle loss and less-than-stellar posture. We often see patients who have shoulders that are slouched forward as a result, not to mention neck and back problems as well.
Back braces used for posture improvement have been shown to help in building muscles that help you sit and stand upright.
Sitting upright and having good posture makes you appear thinner and taller -- and who wouldn't like to add those benefits to their repertoire?
Not to mention, when you slouch, you're not getting the proper amount of oxygen into your body. This can affect your energy levels, which might force you to gain weight or inhibit your performance at work and in your personal life.
If you experience neck or back pain that not even posture correction devices can help, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation.
