Reduce Back Pain with a Posture Corrective Brace

  1. 1. Curing Back Pain With a Posture Corrective Brace An easy way to help alleviate back and neck pain through the use of mild exercises, stretches, and daily use of a posture corrective brace
  2. 2. Part One: Diagnosis <ul><li>Do you have a sore upper back, shoulders and neck? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you get regular headaches? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you spend more than two hours a day at your computer? </li></ul><ul><li>Has anyone ever commented on your poor posture? </li></ul><ul><li>Do your shoulders slouch forward when you’re tired? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Diagnosis, con’t. <ul><li>If you answered yes to two or more of the previous slide’s questions, you are more than likely a good candidate for posture correction therapy to help reduce back pain. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Posture and Back Pain <ul><li>Today we’re spending more and more and more time than ever before, hunched in front of our computers with our necks forward. Whether you’re an accountant, a student, or if you’re just addicted to Facebook, you probably spend too many hours every day with your neck forward, staring into a computer screen, slowly witnessing your back and neck health get worse and worse. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Posture and Back Pain, con’t. <ul><li>Good posture is the foundation of good back health. Many of us don’t realize it, but if we just used proper posture throughout the day, we could eliminate 90% of our back health problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Pay attention to your posture over the next couple days. Chances are, you’ll notice your shoulders tend to slouch forward, and your neck leans forward as well. This posture inevitably leads to pain, and even long-term muscular and skeletal degeneration. </li></ul>
  6. 6. First Steps <ul><li>Exercises and stretches can be very effective, especially for those of us who are elderly or who spend considerable amounts of time at our desk. </li></ul><ul><li>You can purchase a posture exercise DVD at www.posturenow.com </li></ul>
  7. 7. Next Steps <ul><li>Purchase and USE a posture corrective brace . The ONLY posture corrective brace that I would recommend is PostureNOW. Why? Traditional posture corrective braces hold your shoulders back, doing the work for you. This WEAKENS the back muscles over time, which ends up making your posture WORSE in the end. PostureNOW is a comfortable, effective alternative, that provides a gentle reminder to keep your shoulders back, in correct posture, but you use your own back muscles, and in the process you get STRONGER and STRONGER, your posture gets better, and you’ll need to use the PosturerNOW posture corrective brace less and less over time. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Final Words About Back Health <ul><li>Back posture is the foundation of good back health. Poor posture leads to pain in the shoulders, neck and back. </li></ul><ul><li>If you regularly stretch and do posture exercises, coupled with the daily use of a posture corrective brace , you can dramatically improve your back health and live a better, healthier life. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally, good posture will provide additional benefits: You will look taller You will look thinner You will look more confident and secure </li></ul>
