Some ailments, such as back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain and body stiffness, are chronic conditions that many people simply learn to live with -- even adjusting their lifestyles or movements to accommodate the aches and pains.
Our Posture Medic support system is one of the highly effective tools we use to correct poor posture, thereby increasing upper back strength and relieving wear and tear on the shoulders, neck and back.
Posture tools and exercises play an important role in physical therapy, as poor posture can cause improper body alignment which may lead to a host of other physical ailments, injuries and discomforts.
With regular usage of Posture Medic, you can strengthen, straighten and stabilize your back muscles in order to achieve optimal physical comfort and mobility.
Posture Medic can be used for general posture health and body alignment but it can also be used to address the problems caused by a host of physical conditions. Using Posture Medic can help to stretch the affected back muscles and greatly assist in reversing some of the damage done by the following body alignment issues:
Also referred to as hunchback, this condition is characterized by an exaggerated curvature of the bones and joints in the upper back.
Scoliosis can cause the spine to curve from side to side. This curvature can cause pain and create problems with the respiratory system.
Conditions like the ones listed above can cause weakness in the back and neck muscles that lead to chronic slouching and poor posture.
Over time, poor posture and repeated slouching can put extra weight on the muscles of the upper body, including the muscles in the back, neck and shoulder. This constant extra weight may cause a pinching of the muscles that creates strain, discomfort or other damage to the surrounding tendons.
These happen when the tendons connecting the shoulder muscles get torn or damaged. This can be a painful condition that weakens the shoulder and limits range of motion of the arm.
Similar to a Rotator Cuff Injury, Shoulder Impingement Syndrome is also sometimes referred to as Swimmer’s or Thrower’s Shoulder. This condition happens when the tendons in the rotator cuff become affected, or impinged, as they pass through the shoulder joint.
The Posture Medic support system has been frequently used and highly touted by many well-respected chiropractors. They consider it to be an invaluable tool that complements the work they do with their patients to correct body posture. In addition to its overall effectiveness, features that chiropractors appreciate the most are Posture Medic’s ease of use, portability and variety of sizes to suit all body types.
