WHY PUREPOSTURE IS SUPERIOR TO OTHER DEVICES

We've tried them all. We own them all. They work on stretching muscles but are not effective in aligning the spine. Some shouldn't be used if you have certain medical conditions.

We attached tennis and lacrosse balls to our board for stabilization. They were uncomfortable and worked somewhat to ease muscle knots. Unfortunately, there was no lasting power and within a few minutes the knots returned.  

We love large Swiss balls. Super for exercising and stretching.

Balls, regardless of their size, do not align the spine. 

Originally invented for abdominal exercises, and they were great at this! many inversion tables are now re-purposed to help with back pain.

Initially, inversion tables feel pretty good by lengthening the back. But many people SHOULD NOT use them if they have high blood pressure, circulation problems, hernias, detached retinas, glaucoma or take blood thinners. They are a no-go if you have inner ear problems, vertigo, and should not be used if your are pregnant. People who are over weight have difficulty with them. They can cause damage to the neck, ankles, knees and hips.

For us, inversion tables carry too much risk to use in our clinic or with our patients.

They may lengthen the back but do not align the spine in rotation, lateral flexion or flexion .

BACK ARCH SUPPORTS

These devices are muscle stretchers.

We found them to feel pretty good, temporarily, but they do not fix crookedness. For many people, the arch is too high putting too much pressure on neck and the hips.

Back arch supports do not align the spine.

Foam rollers should only be used on the upper back and do help work out muscle tension. They are really helpful on tight IT bands. They SHOULD NOT be used for the low back as they can really hurt the lumbar spine.

Foam rollers do not align the spine.

These braces pull the shoulders back and stabilize the shoulder in a fixed position.

There are problems with these "posture correctors". First, they are uncomfortable [particularly to the front of the shoulders and can irritate the skin. They should be worn with a tee shirt underneath.

More important though, they can cause inflammation to the axilla lymph nodes (in the arm pits) and apply continuous pressure there. This can cause the lymph nodes to become swollen and tender. This is not good.

Finally, bracing like this is an external force necessary to keep your shoulders back, not your own body. It may temporarily give you the impression of good posture but the instant you remove it, your shoulders return to their slouched position. So much for 'correction'.

Shoulder harnesses do not align the spine.

Electronic posture reminders have recently been introduced to the market. In a nutshell, you either adhere the device to your back, or to your lapel, and each time you slouch forward they vibrate as a means to retrain your body to sit or stand more upright. Fantastic idea!

The problem is, they do not "fix" your posture. You can have terrible posture and if you simply extend yourself back, they don't alert you.  

Once your posture has been improved, that is, your spine aligned, THEN these devices make sense.  

Because of PurePosture's patented design, specific vertebrae are on top of the risers while adjacent vertebrae are off and free of the risers. This results in a lengthening of spinal ligaments allowing spinal joints to glide and move into position.

Our design, with an open space between the risers, accommodates the spinous processes of each vertebra for comfort. The space also aids in leveling out any incorrect rotation, flexion or lateral flexion of individual vertebra.

This is how the spine is aligned. Each vertebra is gently moved into its own correct position.
