Do Posture Correctors work?
Looking to correct your posture, but need a few questions answered first – well you have come to the right place. We answer all frequently asked questions below.
With many people now having to balance their everyday lives and working from home, it comes to no surprise that it is beginning to take its toll on people’s posture. A lot of people are now taking less time away from their desk, and if your set up at work is not the most ergonomic, it can certainly cause you to slouch and affect your lumbar spine and erector.
The problem with poor ergonomic set ups is the cumulative stress and load it puts on your joints and your muscles, basically it can do a fair bit of damage in the long run. This naturally will not be great news for your spine, but it will also negatively affect your muscular and cardiovascular systems.
Posture correctors work, however, we advise all our users to continue exercising to improve their overall posture and muscle strength.
