How Does Posture Corrector Works?

Do you slouch over your laptop at work or looking down at your mobile phone?

Do you love reading novels by sitting in the same spot for many hours?

If you’re a serial sloucher, you are not alone.

Bad posture is a fact of life and studies find that 80% of people suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed days at work and one of the leading causes of disability worldwide. Whether you're slouching looking down at your mobile phone, driving long hours or sitting at a desk all day, these everyday activities can negatively affect your posture. Slouching and having an improper posture is more than just a bad habit. It is detrimental to your quality of life as when your back posture is poor, your entire health suffers as a result. Other than back pain, poor posture can lead to accelerated joint degeneration and increased levels of both physical and mental stress.

HOW POOR POSTURE CAN HARM YOUR HEALTH

Bad posture is not only detrimental to your appearance but is above all a physical dysfunction that has to be taken seriously.

If not treated properly can lead to:

  • Soreness & Pain - Slouching isn’t a natural position for our body and forces muscles to work harder and unnaturally. Soreness and pain are common symptoms of bad posture that are often overlooked, but that can lead to long-term health issues and chronic pain.
  • Poor Circulation - A poor posture increases the pressure of fluids moving through our bodies. Slouching or crossing your legs can also lead to lower back pain, cellulite, and spider veins.
  • Negative Mood - As good posture fights negative mood, bad posture promotes it. People who sit with a slouched or slumped posture show lower self-esteem and worse moods than those who sit upright.
  • Increased Stress - Physical stress on your body causes soreness and pain that can also translate into mental stress. Bad posture also decreases levels of testosterone and increases levels of cortisol, the stress hormone.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Since the nerves in our neck and upper back control the muscle function in arms and hands, poor posture can negatively affect these areas.
  • Lack Of Motivation - Posture affects your self-esteem. Since one of the effects of bad posture is lower confidence, a lack of motivation can also stem from bad posture. Your posture affects the way people perceive you, which can affect both personal and work life.
  • Digestive Disorders - Poor digestion is one of the negative consequences of bad posture that often goes unrealized. Maintaining an incorrect posture produces harmful pressure on your digestive system. This makes it harder to digest food and can lead to constipation and negatively impact your metabolism and energy levels.
  • Fatigue - Did you know that bad posture makes you feel more tired? Upright is the normal position of the body, so when you have poor posture your body works harder to keep you upright, and you’ll be left feeling tired.
