Don’t listen to the people commenting on this negatively. I have scoliosis and have tried everything, EVERYTHING under the sun to manage back pain. This device corrected my posture within a few days and has reduced my daily back pain from about a 7 to a 2. The device doesn’t “correct” your posture inherently, but rather helps you to remember to correct and shows you good technique so that you know how to do it yourself. Yes you absolutely need to work on it independently, but this helps so much starting out.

Posture Corrector for Men & Women...

The reviews are mixed, but if you’re of average size it should be ok. It’s worth a shot for 15 bucks.

Made this account just to leave this comment.. first Reddit post from a lurker woo! Hope it works out for you.

Edited to add that I didn’t do much research before buying as it was an impulse buy. There may be better out there with better design/ materials etc., but this one has worked out just fine for me so far. It is slightly annoying to wear, but definitely worth it.

I second the idea of lower back support. Research as much as you can. A pillow will help establish a neutral spine in the car.

Also, for your desk, you can try to sit on an inflatable cushion that will make you sit upright. It is very difficult to sit poorly on this and it will engage and help strengthen your core. This should help a lot. Core exercise, 10 minutes a day will also help. Exercise will be your path to true pain relief.

Gymnic Disc 'o' Sit Inflatable Seat Cushion, Blue

Lots of beginners have reported getting a lot of value from Missy Vineyard's book, "How You Stand, How You Move, How You Live". I've read it myself and it explains the concepts clearly, and really goes into the core of what Alexander Technique is, which is much more about how you use your mind rather than how you try to use your body.

The best way is to get some hands on teaching though, which can be challenging because of cost and proximity to a good teacher. If you can find a good teacher and can afford to do at least say 6 - 10 lessons then you'll probably notice is a big change.

We did a lot of research to find a good one that is not to expensive but effective. We also did a couple of podcasts on sitting posture strengthening you should listen to as well.

walking is good. walking barefoot (or with Vibram Fivefingers) is even better.

check out this awesome book, one of the most interesting books i have ever read -

Born to Run - Christopher McDougall

And this is an interesting one -

Walk Yourself Well

You might look in to finding a rolfer. It's a great structural technique for balancing the body, with a strong focus on standing/sitting straight. They'll measure your imbalances, then work on them, re-measure, work on them again, give you tips on maintaining the balance, etc.

A back buddy could also help with the trigger points in your back.

Photos are difficult to show postural changes very well.

However, check out the book Rolfing for lots of photos.

Yes, posture can change, but for most people, it takes time to learn the exercises, time to retrain your nervous system. Outside help like a trainer or practitioner can help speed that up. Ida Rolf could do it in 10 one hour sessions. Otherwise you're looking at months or years of exercises. Don't get me wrong, I don't think Rolfing is a substitute for postural or mindful exercises, but it can dramatically speed up the process.

I've been reading this one. It's helped me out a lot so far. I highly recommend it.

Good luck!

Pulling your shoulders back contributes to the lumbar extension. What you want to do instead is externally rotate your shoulders, and that will generate stability for your upper body instead of "forcing" stability by bending backward (smashing vertebrae together).

Physical therapist Kelly Starrett described his "bracing posture" in his book Deskbound. There are basically 5 steps to creating a correct posture.

  1. Stand with your feet under your hips, pointing straight.
  2. Clench your glutes to reset your pelvis in a neutral position.
  3. Clench (slightly) your abdominals to "hold" this pelvic positioning.
  4. Screw your legs into the ground externally to grip the floor.
  5. Rotate your shoulders externally to generate positive tension within the upper body (you can do this by raising your arms laterally at first). Edit: Done correctly, this will tend to point your thumbs forward.

    This guy does an OK job at the sequence, but Starrett's book is where the good info is.

I actually use these in conjunction with an ergonomic stand that straddles my body so that all my joints are in a neutral position. I look all sorts of ridiculous, but my vertebrae loves me for it.

u/tryhannasomatics · 1 pointr/Posture

I subscribed to this channel - and signed up to her web course which provides really detailed step by step videos. I found that the above book and her ^ video course covered everything to control/release back, stomach, hip etc tension and to regain postural health and movement

There are some additional posts about hanna somatics on this sub. Buy the book, google hanna somatics and watch and do the exercises on youtube.

It works.

Good luck

Pelvic tilt is extant, but minor. Main issue is posterior tilt of the ribcage, anterior shift of the shoulders and head (difficult to assess because of the fact that you took the picture yourself and held onto the wall), and posterior shift of the tibia on the calcaneus.

As always, if you want really good info check out Anatomy Trains (Website / Amazon).

Be warned; you need to know, or be willing to learn, anatomy terminology.

If you're not willing to learn it yourself: Stretch low back, calves, anterior neck, and pectorals. Strengthen rhomboids and abdominals.

DMI Ortho Bed Wedge Elevated Leg...

I use a leg wedge it keeps me on my back while I sleep ( I have had 3 shoulder surgeries so side sleeping is out )

I would recommend going to one of those back health stores and finding the right wedge.

u/dogsarepeople2 · 1 pointr/Posture

I've been using this exercise ball chair for four months now and I love it. It takes some getting used to at first, but it's really hard to slouch in it.

u/diarrhea666 · 1 pointr/Posture

This book really helped me with my posture problems. Some of the most useful info is in the first chapter or two, which is available in the content sample in the link I provided.

u/doodledeedoo3 · 2 pointsr/Posture

Sort of related - you may want to read about polyvagal theory. There is also a FB group called Cranial Lab I think that’s discussing similar issues to what you mentioned with your dental stuff impacting the rest of your body

u/julry · 1 pointr/Posture

Hmm, I think that PDF is attacking a strawman idea that professionals don’t believe (“The division of the trunk into core and global muscle system is a reductionist fantasy”) or else it’s something that Pilates trainers or other nonprofessionals do that isn’t supported by doctors and the actual research (“A whole industry grew out of these studies with gyms and clinics worldwide teaching the “tummy tuck” and trunk bracing exercise to athletes for prevention of injury and to patients as a cure for lower back pain”).

Stuart McGill is an expert orthopedic on back pain issues and he prescribes glute and back strengthening exercises. He’s also very careful about the specific exercises and says that many popular exercises for abs etc are not helpful or dangerous. I don’t think he recommends clenching the transverse abdominals. The exercise in the OP video is similar to a dead bug which is a safe and recommended exercise.

Need to turn in to the floor 3/4 turn. Bend the upper knee, straighten the lower leg, don't twist the body. It usually takes some coaching for people to learn to do this without swaying the lower back and/or tucking the pelvis (I have pics in my book). from our shop or from Amazon

A certain Dr Sarno had a similar take on this. Putting the detail of his theorising of his aside (he has an idea about muscle response and stuff), he basically said:

Back pain is rarely due to actual back problems. Plenty of people with knackered discs walk around pain-free. The pain is due to referral of sorts - your brain representing emotional pain or stress or anxiety in body locations.

Sometimes the location is 'inspired' by a previous accident which makes you wonder if it has recurred, but that's more to do with it being a previous emotional spot than actual physical injury (he says).

His answer: Stop trying to work out what's wrong. Just trust that it is your brain playing up, and carry on as normal. Sometimes even that simple acknowledgement of the pain is enough to clear it up!

Let me double up on the OP's anxiety-depression treatment encouragement. Not even treatment, so much as: recognise that your system is declaring to you that all is not well in your life, in how you are handling things, and see if you are pushing yourself along in a way, or in a direction, you secretly know you shouldn't be.
