Posture braces are ALL THE RAGE! “Posture brace” is a new buzz word… I’m sure you’ve seen the add on Facebook/ Instagram…
“Fix your posture by wearing this handy device!”
“Wear this shirt and we guarantee amazing posture!”
In my opinion, there is a little to no value in almost all these new products. I just don’t believe that one external source, on its own, can solve your “posture” problems. Posture is, and will always, be controlled by your joints and muscles. What is the best way to adjust your joint positions and muscle length and strength…. why exercise of course!This email is NOT another diatribe on why you should be doing daily exercises at your desk and in your home to help combat your life of sitting/texting/driving (I do send a lot of those messages out into the universe). Today’s post is about a particular posture brace called Better Back.
I saw this produce on Shark Tank year’s ago. I remember thinking to myself “ why didn’t I think of that!?” This particular brace is unique. It’s not the “place straps around your shoulders to pull your shoulders back” kind of posture brace. I’ve been approached plenty of times to review those kinds of braces and I’ve always said NO. I believe that your scapula muscles need to be trained to hold your shoulders back on their own.
Better Back helps with sitting posture, and adjusts a very important body position that will translate up through the rest of your body, making it easier for you to pull your shoulders back naturally.
Take a look at my review here so you can see what I’m talking about:
