Posture Support from FootSmart
 
Posture support cushions, posture support pillows and other products for posture support can help ease painful backaches. Eighty percent of the world’s population will experience back pain at some point over the course of their lives. In fact, back pain is the number one problem facing the United States workforce today, resulting in missed work days, decreased company productivity levels and, of course, uncomfortable, wrenching pain for the sufferer.

Clearly, back pain and bad posture needs to be taken seriously, and using posture support cushions should be a high priority.


 
How to treat and prevent lower back pain:
 
The body needs sound posture support to maintain its weight and perform normal activities. If the posture support structure is weakened, the muscles must work harder to keep the feet, knees, hips and back in alignment.
 
Prevention Techniques
 
The body needs sound posture support to maintain its weight and perform normal activities. If the posture support structure is weakened, the muscles must work harder to keep the feet, knees, hips and back in alignment.
  • Posture Support: The most important aspect of good back support is practicing good posture when standing and sitting. During the day, you’re using your back muscles constantly, and these strained and weakened muscles need the additional back support good posture can provide… so sit up straight and hold your head high. You can also use back cushions for better posture support in order to prevent back pain.
  • Foot Support: The body’s foundation starts with the feet, so minor changes in shoes – buying more therapeutic shoes, avoid high heels, giving your feet support with orthotics (shoe inserts) – can also relieve back strain and provide better back support.
