How to Use the Lower Back Posture Corrector

The Lower Back Posture Corrector uses posture correction to relieve back pain and increase blood flow. When used, the lower back is supported and pulled forward using leverage from the knees. 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 Lower Back Posture Corrector:

  • Relieves tension on the spine and hips through posture correction
  • Reeducates muscles to keep good posture
  • Stabilizes your pelvis
  • Provides lumbar support

How does the Lower Back Posture Corrector reduce back pain?

As the Lower 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 Lower Back Posture Corrector at intervals throughout the day will strengthen your muscles until you can maintain correct posture without using the device. The Lower 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 lower back but leaves your upper back unsupported so you can train your muscles to maintain good posture. 


How do you use the Lower Back Posture Corrector?

The best way to use the Lower 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 Lower 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 Lower 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 legs, do not try to drive while wearing it. If you need a posture corrector to use while driving, try our Upper Back Posture Corrector. 

Our Lower Back Posture Corrector also zips up in a small case so you can store it in a bag easily while you are out and about. 


Does the Lower Back Posture Corrector hurt?

Because the Lower 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.
