How to get correct neck posture

The correct neck posture is very important. Unfortunately, the modern lifestyle has made it very difficult for us to keep the correct posture. This means that you will catch yourself craning your neck, stretching your neck, straining your neck as a result. We spend hours on end working on our phones, computers and other devices, of course at the expense of the health of the neck. What can we do to ensure that we safeguard the correct neck posture?

Slouching on the office desk is the first bad habit that puts a lot of strain on the neck as you lean forward to the monitor. If you do not have the correct size of the seat .The height of the chair may not be the correct one for the desk. The ergonomics should go into the design of the office furniture. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

In order to correct this problem, the seat should be of the correct height. The desk should be of the correct distance from the chair so that you do not strain a lot when leaning forward. Ideally, you should be able to see the screen of the computer in a straight line, i.e the eye level. As such, you should not look up or down when working on the computer. This will help  with correct neck posture.

Neck tilt

There is one problem that is observable among   the users of smart phones. They have a way of tilting their necks as they   operate the devices. If you tilt at a certain angle, there will be too much weight pressure being applied on the cervical spine.

To correct this problem, you will need to know at what angle you should hold them phone relative to the neck. Simply put, get yourself a case that enables you to put the tablet or Smartphone at a comfortable position .The devices will be propped so that you do not have to strain when using   it.

After working on your tablet for some time, practice neck rotations whereby you will require to turn right and left a few times before you continue.

 Balancing the muscles

It is not   easy to maintain the balance in all the muscles. You will find that they can be exercised in some small steps but in a big way, they will have a profound impact on the neck. Work on the shoulder blades by pinching them, each at a time.

 The Pec muscles should on the other hand be stretched in order to correct the overstretched muscles in the upper back.

 The chin tuck is recommended and especially where the good posture is required. It helps to work out the neck muscles. In order to does it correctly, pull in the chin towards the head and then release again. This procedure should be followed a few times until you start feeling the upper back relaxing.

Even with all this advice, you will find that there is need to take preventive measures to ensure that you do not strain the neck muscles.

Pros of posture corrector device

The first thing that you need to do to improve your posture is to invest in a posture corrector device. Out of the so many posture corrector devices that I have sampled, there is one that I found that is very effective.

It has over-the-shoulder support, thus enabling you to stand straight. It is beige in colour and measures anything from 22-46 inches.

 The straps of the device are not only soft; they are inelastic, meaning that fit very well on the shoulders in a secure way. If you have given sizes for the shoulders, this is just the right device that you need to wear.

 Hook and loop

There is a closure made from a hook and loop which can be adjusted depending on the amount of support that you need. This is an important aspect because it basically means that you will not have a lot of pressure on your back.

 Cloth protector

It has a special cloth called terry which helps to keep your back. This basically means that even after a workout, you will dry at the back.

Ease of cleaning

The posture corrector device is easy to wash and dry and then you stretch it back to its right size and form. Not many devices will come with such enviable features.

Adaptability

One thing you will like about this device is that it adapts very well to your body frame. This way, it ensures that you maintain the correct posture all the time.

The body postures which will be corrected include the following:

Slouching

Do you always catch yourself slouching as you sit? We are all guilty of this sitting position at pen point or another. This sitting position serious affects our posture. The aim of the device is to help maintain a straight back. The consistent use of the device will see your posture restored.

The brace should be worn as regularly as possible and especially if   you hard a run in with your back.

Hunchback

We suffer a hunchback posture based on the way we keep the back when sitting or walking. Sometimes you really can’t help; you find yourself in this position. This device will help correct this anomaly and you will have a better position.

Support on the shoulders

Whether you are standing or sitting, you will realize that we place a lot of pressure on shoulders. If we do not correct this problem, the posture is affected. You need a device that will be gentle to your shoulder as well as easing the pressure.

The binding fit that we find in some braces makes one uncomfortable. As such, you will not feel comfortable wearing them. The fact that it is not binding makes this device the ultimate tool to help rectify your posture.

I have complete confidence in this posture corrector device and would thus highly recommend to anyone who has posture problems. It is affordable, light, easy wear and adjusts. It fits well and wears easily, not to mention that it keeps you dry at the back.

Posture fix review

When sitting, standing or walking we make some mistakes which give us a bad posture. For instance, there is a tendency to slouch when sitting down.  Slouching is a very bad habit because it places a lot of strain on the back due to tension created in the muscles. In order to correct it, you have to learn to sit properly.

People who slouch find it very painful to maintain the desired sitting position since the back muscles are conditioned to that position.

There are a number of Posture fix exercise that you can engage in to correct this poor posture. Seriously work on the buttocks and the back extension. The plank and the bridges are some of the exercises that you can work on as you get started on your way to recovery. What is also important is to remember is that the desk and the seat at the office stand in the way for you to restore your posture.

 Have you persons with a Donald duck posed when standing? Probably you stand this way. It is not a normal posture as the bottoms stick out of your body in an undesirable way. You are suffering from a condition known as hyperlordosis.  The condition is characterized by an inward curve at the lower back. Women in particular are susceptible to this problem because they wear high heels, pregnancy as well as putting on a lot of weight.

 All is not lost though. You can engage in Posture fix exercises to remedy the situation. The main ones are the leg rises while lying down on the side, flexor exercises on the hip as well as the thigh stretches while standing.

 Standing posture is perhaps one of the abused by people. You might think that you are in an upright posture when in fact you are not. The body will not be in the right alignment, the curvature of the spine wrong and the neck is not straight. Again, as long as the hips are not parallel to the shoulders, you cannot claim to have the posture.

To fix this problem, there are a number of Posture fix exercises that you will need to carry out. The first thing is to ensure that you pull back your shoulders if they are hunched back or forward. Let them rest in their natural position. Your abdomen should not be sticking out. Ensure that you pull it in. The feet and the hip should be kept apart while at the same time, ensuring that you keep your neck straight; tilting it is bad for your posture .Lastly, the knees should be relaxed.

A flat back is not healthy at all because it basically means that you have a straight lower instead of having it curved. When you realize that you are not able to stand for long, this could be the first problem to suspect.

 It is not recommended that you lean on one leg when standing. The buttocks and cores should support you, not the lower back or hip.

Women’s posture corrector review

If you are woman, you will agree with me that good posture is  a prerequisite to good health. Women   do a lot of things which involve standing, bending, stretching among others. There is however a number of physical challenges which arise and which must be addressed through the correct women’s posture collector.  The following are the main considerations that you should bear in mind as a woman.

 Straight and aligned

The first thing that you need to work on for the women’s posture corrector is the straight posture. The alignment has to be there not just in terms of how you feel but how you project yourself.

 Relieve the pressure that is usually most experienced at the upper/lower back regions, the neck and shoulders. With the  right posture corrector ,you will find that much of  the pressure felt in these areas will be  drastically reduced.Indeed,one of the main reasons why you feel so much  pressure un these regions is because of lack of  the right exercises.

Following the right exercises for each of one of the areas will help to restore the good posture. For instance, you may consider the shoulder shrugs to stretch the muscles. However, braces will come handy in helping you manage the pain and pressure.

Spine alignment

The spine is delicate and will tend to go inward when it curves. This will make it difficult to manage the pain that is likely to resort. Braces are used to bring back the spine back to the right position .This should however be done carefully, firmly and gently. The brace should be worn for a reasonable period of time. Each day, ensure that the brace is properly adjusted so that you can go on with your daily duties. If need be, you can carry out some simple exercises to strengthen the respective parts such as the shoulder. The purpose of this brace is to provide the support needed.

 Constant reminder

Why do you need the posture corrector?  In case you assume the wrong posture, some of these of devices come with a feedback mechanism to alert you so that you can rectify and take up the right posture.

There is also the conscious awareness that develops due to the continued use these devices to correct posture. It is however important to invest in the right devices like braces to help in the quick and automatic responses every time you deviate from the good posture.

Support

There is needed to get the absolute support t that you need to improve on your posture. The women’s posture corrector should provide you the support together with the compression so that you maintain the right balance and posture.

The comfort posture corrector and back support is one example of the device that a woman can use. Its liner is made from 100% cotton. It is effective in helping one to form the correct posture.

If you have a spinal injury or the spinal curvature has worsened, you will need this women’s posture corrector to correct them.

Posture exercises Review

 There are many posture corrective exercises that we engage in. Some do work while others don’t. If you care for your posture, there a number of exercise one can take so as to prevent various problems which could arise.

The off balance core

The pelvis is an important part of the body. In order to stabilize it, you will need to strengthen the core muscles so that they work in tandem. The core stabilizer exercise involves   one leg extension as one of the main off-balance moves that you will make.

How it is done

When carrying out the posture exercises such as this one, there are some specific positions that are you are supposed to make. The first thing that you will need to do is to bend you knee as you lay flat. The hands are put at the back of the head .meanwhile; the lower back is pressed against the floor. When maintaining this position, you should breathe out and pull your navel towards your spine. The abdomen should be pulled in while you maintain the low back to the floor.

The second example of the posture exercises is known the new crunch. During this curl-up style exercise, you will be required lie on your back while bending your knees in bent position. Ensure that you are in contact with the floor. Once again, the hands should be maintained at the back of the head. The arms can also be stretched so that they reach the knees, but be careful so that you don’t place too much strain on the neck.

This exercise follows the same steps as those of the core stabilizer as you will exhale and then bend so that the navel reaches the spine. The intensity of this form of exercise can be increased by extending the legs at 45 degrees to the ceiling. It is advisable to exercise both knees by keeping them off the flow while bending them. All the while, ensure that the shins are lying in a parallel position to your floor.

The advantage of this form of exercise is that it enables you to work out the six-pack muscles as well as the obliques.

The third among the posture exercises is what we call palates roll up. It is also known as yoga sit-up. This form type of exercise is recommended for you because it helps to improve the rector abdominals. The latter are the muscles which are located around the waist. The role of these muscles is to hold the abdomen in the upward and outward position relative to the spine.

How the exercise is done

The first thing that you will need to do is to straighten your legs as you lie flat on the floor. The hands, as usual will be positioned at the back of your head. The low back is then pressed so as to be in contact with the floor.

Lastly, you should breath out and curl in such a way that the navel moves close to the spine.
