Posture and posture-related back problems are like the age-old question of which came first: the chicken or the egg. Does poor posture cause back problems, or do back problems cause poor posture? The reality is that it can go both ways. If you repeatedly sit incorrectly when watching television, doing computer work, sitting at a desk, or even driving your car, you very likely will end up with spine misalignments and the resulting back pain. If your spine is not in good alignment for other reasons, it may be very difficult, or even painful, to maintain a proper posture at first. With proper treatment, however, you can get relief.
Correcting your posture can take more than just a concerted effort to keep in the right position because after a history of improper posture, your muscles may not cooperate. When this is the case, the use of a posture medic exerciser can help. A posture medic exerciser will aid you in stretching, strengthening and stabilizing the muscles needed for proper posture. Continued periodic use of a posture medic exerciser can promote proper alignment and balance, keeping your posture its best at all times.
