Backpod is a great way to improve your overall posture. It’s widely acknowledged that perfect posture can improve your confidence, mood and wellbeing.
Perfect posture sends a deep, instant body language message of self-confidence, self-esteem, being present, being valuable – literally being balanced. By comparison, a hunched posture sends a message of submission, lack of self-confidence, lack of self esteem, subordinate, not so worthwhile being listened to, more of a victim.
So there’s a reason beyond upper back pain, neck pain and headache why posture matters. Every person you meet is receiving the silent message you’re sending them – friends, family, workmates, prospective employers, everyone.
Hunching over smartphones and laptops is driving not only a huge upsurge in upper back pain, neck pain and headache, but also contributing to a drop in initiative, self-confidence and even happiness – especially in the young who have grown up with the small, portable devices.
You can do something about it. It’s not difficult and you don’t have to stop using your devices. The Backpod was developed as a home treatment and ongoing care package to get you back towards perfect posture.
This isn’t just a matter of sitting upright – you have to cover each part of the problem. You need enough muscle support so you can automatically hold yourself correctly without fatiguing, and easy muscle stretch and spinal joint movement so they don’t stop you from getting there.
The Backpod is a stylish spinal fulcrum specifically designed to stretch out a tightened, hunched upper back – just by lying back on it. You need this extra leverage to stretch out most hunched spines, exercises alone can’t to do this bit.
As a bonus for working your way back towards perfect posture you also get taller. As you straighten out a hunched upper back, you gain in total height. This is often as much as from half an inch to nearly an inch.
Just the one treatment approach on its own, such as going to the gym or chiropractic manipulation, generally doesn’t work well or last. Of course, if you’re already doing yoga or pilates, or anything else useful – don’t stop. The Backpod and its program will cover the other bits needed, and you can add them in at home in your own time.
You may need other health professionals for any tricky bits, such as manipulation for thoroughly locked neck joints. But Backpod and its program make up the simplest effective bundle you can use at home to pull yourself straight and be pain free again.
