What is Posture Medic?
The Posture Medic can help you improve your posture and strengthen your back and core muscles. By doing the stretches and exercises you can improve your posture, potentially reduce pain and improve your overall health with the Posture Medic.
The Posture Medic is a posture reminding resistance band that helps you stretch, strengthen and stabilise your back. We developed a 6-week program to guide you towards improved posture. You will learn how to stretch those tight muscles in your chest, neck and back. This may increases your range of motion by loosening tight muscles, thus allowing you to straighten your back. Our strengthening exercises specifically target the muscles in your neck and back that help you maintain proper posture. These back and neck muscles are often overlooked when working out and are underutilized due to our poor posture.
Throughout your busy day, you often end up slouching or hunching over without realizing it. This compresses your spine and tightens your chest and neck. Your upper back ends up weaker because it’s not engaged properly. And where does all this lead? Poor posture! And sometimes to pain. Posture Medic helps stabilise your posture by holding your shoulders further back and reminding you to “straighten up”. Wear the Posture Medic to help you develop the habit of straightening your back and shoulders. And you can do this without missing a beat!
Poor Posture Arises for Two Main Reasons:
Tight Tonic Muscles — Your tonic muscles are responsible for holding your posture. They can constrict and tighten making it more difficult to achieve and maintain correct posture. You need to stretch these muscles to increase your range of motion so that you can improve your posture.
Weak Phasic Muscles — Your phasic muscles are used for dynamic movement. They can weaken and lengthen, making you more prone to slouching. You need to strengthen them so that your neck and back can maintain proper posture all day.
To offset our modern lifestyle, we need to actively care for our postural muscles. The Posture Medic was created for this purpose. We cannot simply rely on being conscious of our poor posture. Periodically remembering to sit or stand up straight will not create lasting effects. We need to stretch, strengthen and stabilise the region in order to correct poor posture.
To choose the correct Posture Medic for you:
Select the Strength (Original or Plus) based on your Exercise Program.
Select the correct size below.
75% of the population should begin with the Original Strength before advancing to the Plus Strength.
Obese individuals may require the Plus Strength regardless of activity level to support bulk in the chest area.
