Why good posture is important & how a posture corrector can help you

Good posture is one of the most important aspects when it comes to personal health. Posture is a word that we hear a lot. But what is it really? Posture is a word derived from the latin positura which essentially means “to put in place”. Posture refers to the correct positioning of the body parts when you are maintaining a position.

In medicine, good posture is known as a neutral spine, in which the spine should have three natural curves. When looking directly from the front, or the back, the spine should appear completely vertical.

When viewed from the side, the cervical region and the lumbar region should be bent inwards whereas the thoracic and pelvic regions should be bent outwards.

Maintaining good posture will help you avoid a number of conditions that you may encounter down the road such as back pain, joint diseases and problems associated with breathing and the heart.

Multiple behaviors that can contribute towards postural dysfunction are;

  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor physical fitness
  • Lack of exercise
  • Stiffness of the joints
  • Unhealthy workplace environments

Most often, bad posture is a result of your unhealthy habits and lack of awareness. You are most likely to sit, sleep or work in a way that is bad for your body. Modern work environments that rely on extended periods of sitting such as office environments can make you engage in bad posture without you even knowing it.

Such behavior can cause sore muscles, which can lead to stiffness in the back. If this is not remedied, the condition can become severe and permanent, leading to abnormal bone structures and muscle pains.

When the back is affected by bad posture, it will significantly degrade your quality of life. The spine is home to a vast number of nerve endings and all signals to the body is transmitted through these nerves. Thus, when the back is affected, the consequences you will have to face are severe.

A clinical trial conducted by the Mayo Clinic Rochester - Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation - Minnesota identified a significant improvement in patients who were experiencing back pains resulting from incorrect posture. Kaplan and Sinaki who conducted the study concluded that a posture corrector brace can reduce back pain by improving posture. From the 23 test subjects, 19 reported improved posture and no one reported worsening of back pain. Multiple other studies conclude similar results, stating posture corrector braces to offer a non-intrusive and economical option to practice good posture.
