- Do you want to improve posture?
- Does your back posture when you sit cause back pain?
- Is bad posture slowing you down and taking the fun out of activity?
What about a rest?
It's always tempting to book a week long beach vacation at a St. George Island rental so that you can relax and recover from back pain. But does it work? Not usually. Rest doesn't correct biomechanical problems, in fact it can create more strain and weakness if you're resting for the wrong reasons.
What about a back brace?
A back brace or other posture support brace simply won’t work. Good posture is a balance of strength and flexibility, symmetry and balance. A back brace or posture support (like PostureNow seen on Shark Tank and other similar products) do nothing but put tension on the body to hold it in place. What happens when you take it off? You’re worse!
Posture braces don’t work.
Think of a cast holding an arm at a 90 degree angle for several weeks. When you take off the cast, is the arm stronger? Does it move with ease? No! The arm is weak because muscles have atrophied, and even worse – it’s painful to straighten because it was held in a fixed position, over-tightening some muscles and over-stretching others.
What about a chair support?
Most chair supports are designed to fit behind your back and force your body forward, this is not effective. For proper support in your office chair, try a wedge. It's designed to go in the seat of your chair and gently tilts your hips forward, while your spine "floats" in a supported, comfortable position.
