How to Get Back Pain Relief with the Upper Back Posture Corrector

The Upper Back Posture Corrector uses posture correction to relieve back pain and increase blood flow. When used, the upper back is supported and pulled back. In doing so, the spine is stacked upright, and pressure on the discs from slouching is released.


Why is posture correction important?

Good posture means maintaining the natural curvature of your spine. Maintaining correct posture will help you stand, sit, and walk without back pain.  Because poor posture causes abnormal wearing of joint surfaces, when you practice good posture, you reduce the risk of degenerative arthritis and joint pain. Practicing correct posture also minimizes the chance of injury caused from stress on ligaments and helps you have more energy because your muscles are being used correctly. 


Benefits of the Upper Back Posture Corrector:

  • Relieves back pain with posture correction
  • Improves circulation through spinal alignment
  • Improves your mood by increasing blood flow throughout your body
  • Reminds you to improve your posture

How does the Upper Back Posture Corrector reduce back pain?

The Upper Back Posture Corrector uses posture correction to relieve back pain and increase blood flow. It’s worn just like a backpack, without a pack. When used, the shoulders are pulled backwards, and the chest muscles are stretched to counteract the slouching position common when sitting at a computer.

As the Upper Back Posture Corrector starts to train your muscles to work more efficiently, you will feel less back pain as a result of posture correction. Wearing the Upper Back Posture Corrector at intervals throughout the day will strengthen your muscles until you can maintain correct posture without using the device. The Upper Back Posture Corrector was made to help you gain muscle strength instead of doing all the work for you so that you can train your muscles to have good posture on their own. It supports your upper back but leaves your lower back unsupported so you can train your muscles to maintain good posture. 


How do you use the Upper Back Posture Corrector?

The best way to use the Upper Back Posture Corrector is to ease into it and back out of it. The goal of using a posture corrector isn’t so the posture corrector does all the work for you. Good posture correctors should help train and strengthen your muscles to maintain good posture so you can have correct posture even without the posture correction device. 

We recommend wearing the Upper Back Posture Corrector  just 10 minutes a day to start out. Your muscles might be sore after using it, which means the posture corrector is working hard to train your muscles. As you feel more comfortable with the posture corrector, start wearing it for 10 minutes twice a day or for 20 minutes a day. Gradually add time each day with the posture corrector. Then when your muscles don’t feel sore from wearing it, gradually work back down so you don’t have to use the posture corrector at all to maintain good posture. This method will be the most beneficial for your body to avoid pain now and in the future. 


Can you travel with it? 

The Upper Back Posture Corrector can be a great tool to use as a passenger in a car or an airplane. However, because it limits motion in your upper body, we recommend caution if you would like to drive while wearing it.

Our Upper Back Posture Corrector is also so lightweight and easy to store in any backpack or purse.


Does the Upper Back Posture Corrector hurt?

Because the Upper Back Posture Corrector works to strengthen and train your muscles to maintain correct posture on their own, the posture corrector might cause muscle soreness the first few times you use it, just like any new exercise regimen. Because using the posture corrector is a form of muscle training, mild muscle pain from using the product is normal. However, just like any new exercise regimen, you should consult your doctor before you begin using a new product.
