Don’t Be A Slouch! Perfect Your Posture
Thursday, 11 April 2013 | Naomi
Most of us spend the majority of our days sitting. Whether it is in front of a computer, infront of the television, or to sit down for dinner, we spend a lot of our time sat down! Problems can start to develop with your posture if you are not sat correctly or if you are in a slouched position. The results of poor posture can be neck pain, back pain and even headaches. If you are looking to improve your posture, why not check out our range of lumbar supports and seating aids to help.
Support Your Spine
Lumbar supports are an excellent way to help improve your posture. Lumbar rolls and cushions can help to prevent neck and back pain caused by poor posture when used correctly. The McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll has been designed by world-renowned physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. This small, firm lumbar cushion is designed to help maintain the arch of your spine whilst sitting.
All McKenzie lumbar supports are designed and made to the highest quality and are ideal for use at home or in the office. The McKenzie Super Lumbar Roll is made of injected moulded foam which retains support for an almost indefinite period. Its curved, slightly flatter shape comfortably contours around the body.
Portable Lumbar Support
If you don’t fancy carrying around your lumbar cushion everywhere you go, you may be interested in the McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll. This excellent lumbar support is inflatable making it ideal for use when travelling or at work. When deflated, the McKenzie Airback Lumbar Roll folds into the size of a postcard so it will not weigh your bag down!
Improve Your Chair
Sometimes it is not always possible or affordable to buy a specialist posture correcting chair. This is where the Dynaspine comes into its own. The Dynaspine is a portable back support which can be attached to almost any type of chair. Its unique design provides dynamic support for the back and is designed to help alleviate back ache and help prevent back pain whilst seated.
The Dynaspine is an excellent choice if you suffer from back pain, neck pain or tension in your spine and shoulders. Studies have shown that sitting in an ergonomically sound seated position reduces pressure on the spine and discs, decreasing muscle fatigue and reducing back pain.
