Benefits of Proper Posture

Posture Brace & Maintaining Proper Posture

The purpose of a posture brace is to maintain proper body alignment to prevent excess strain on your joints and muscles. This will result in a decrease in pain, reduce your chance of injury, and boost mood. Poor posture can contribute to a number of health related issues such as headaches, back and neck pain, shoulder pain/impingement syndrome, knee and foot pain, jaw pain and fatigue/difficulty breathing. Those who have jobs that include sitting at a desk, bending over, repetitive motions, computer work, reading, etc. may be more at risk for developing postural related injuries.
