For starters, “good” posture occurs when the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is both stable and energy efficient. Over time, factors like daily habits, exercise, and even shoe choice can all take a toll on your posture. Bad posture can be genetic or injury-induced, or just simply the force of gravity acting on your body as you repeatedly move through motions that do not support the body’s natural alignment.
Because posture is all about muscular strength on the skeleton, the best fix is training those muscles so that they can support your body back into its natural alignment. While it’s up to you to do the work, you can use posture correctors to help guide your body back to its natural position. Here are a few posture correctors to try if you’re ready to stop slouching.
