Poor posture is the result of certain muscles tightening up or shortening while others lengthen and become weak. It often occurs as a result of one’s daily activities. There are different factors which can impact on posture and they include occupational activities and biomechanical factors such as force and repetition. Risk factors for poor posture also include psychosocial factors such as job stress and strain. Symptoms include (a) rounded and elevated shoulders and a pushed-forward head position, or (b) forward tilting of the hips, an increase in the curve of the lumbar spine, and a protruding stomach. Supports such as those below can help correct this disorder. Please check with us or your physician prior to making a choice.
