Your current posture is the result of years of activity. How you used to walk, sit, or stand determines your present postural habits. If you used to work hours on your computer with hands extended over the table, you probably have a rounded shoulder today. On the other hand, if you used to load or unload trucks, or do anything that included bending or twisting, you probably have a misaligned back.
Now that you already have a rounded shoulder or a misaligned back, you must do something to correct it. While exercising can be a good option, if you don’t have enough time for that, wearing a shoulder or a back posture support can help you. Just 30 minutes of wearing one of these posture supports will on one hand support your back and shoulders, while on the other, will retrain the back and shoulder muscles, so that you don’t spoil your posture.
The first sign of your posture getting poor is the rounding of your shoulders. Rounding of you shoulders not only makes you look awkward but also causes a shoulder pain. Similar to the Sciatica nerve that causes acute pain starting from hip till the leg, the nerve that starts from cervix and reaches the shoulder also get affected in the same way. This is the main cause for you to have a pain from shoulder to the elbow.
The major role of a shoulder posture support is to hold back the position of your shoulder. Wearing a shoulder support brace gently forces your shoulders to be back. This allows free blood circulation into your hands and arms. But, the use of an uncomfortable shoulder posture support can cause acute headaches and neck pain.
If the shoulder posture support is not of correct size, it may lower the blood flow rate to you brain, hence causing headaches. There are many brands and qualities of shoulder posture supports available today, but you must choose the best one for you to see results.
While a shoulder posture support primarily focuses of supporting the shoulder, a back posture majorly aims in supporting and retraining your back muscles. In fact, there are some back posture supports that focus of supporting lower back, while others are meant for supporting upper back. Interestingly, some posture support braces are capable of pushing you shoulders back, and at the same time forcing your back to be straight.
Doing works involving bending or twisting for a long time will fatigue your core muscle. One of the best ways to retrain them is by wearing a shoulder or back support brace. The greatest advantage of using a shoulder or back support brace is that you can wear them whenever and wherever you feel like. Interestingly, wearing it for only 30 minutes to 60 minutes a day will show drastic results. So, if you think you won’t be able to extract even a few minutes from your busy schedule to workout, try using one of these posture corrective brace.
