Re-Posture Reviews: While having good posture is a noble goal, most posture correctors won’t help you get there. In fact, some of these devices can do more harm than good. That’s because your body starts to rely on the devices to hold you upright, particularly if you wear them for long periods of time. Your core muscles can relax and weaken as a result, which is bad for your posture. In a Scandinavian research review published in 2019, six studies claiming to show wearable shirt-type posture correctors work were checked. Due to support from device manufacturers, the majority of the experiments were found to be poorly planned and potentially biassed.
All of these devices have the advantage of growing your understanding of your posture and whether or not you need to change it. The easiest way to develop your posture, according to psychologists, is to perform core-strengthening exercises like yoga and to focus on standing and sitting correctly in your everyday life.
If you’re always having problems with your posture, talk to your doctor about whether you have a contributing condition like scoliosis (spinal curvature). You will also need to consult with a physical therapist to develop an exercise routine that can help you maintain good posture without the use of gimmicks.
