Stay Upright and use Proper Posture

Posted on February 23, 2015 by Core Products There have been 0 comments

Sitting in a chair all day is bad enough for your health as it is. Sitting in a chair while not practicing proper posture is even worse. It seems most people tend to slouch or lean to one side or another while staying seated over an extended period of time.

There are three natural curves in your spine. Working to maintain these is important in preventing both back pain and headaches. When seated it’s important to sit tall and open up by stretching. If you’r ein front of a computer monitor try not to stay hunched in front of it for long periods of time.

Posture is also important when standing. A few tips from the Mayo Clinic for preventing back pain with good posture while standing include:

-        Keeping your shoulders back and relaxed
-        Maintaining your feet about hip distance apart
-        Balancing your weight evenly on both feet
-        Pulling in your abdomen
-        Letting your hands hang naturally

Maintaining proper posture isn’t easy. Our Body Shield Posture Support is a great way to help you maintain good posture throughout the day whether you’re sitting, standing, or moving all around. This back support gently pulls your shoulders back and holds them in the proper position for correct spine alignment.

The support is made from a unique material of open cell foam providing the same firm support and compression of neoprene without irritating skin or retaining heat. Maintaining proper posture is an excellent way to begin a journey of living a healthier life. It’s relatively easy to start and doesn’t require too much effort.
