Do the braces that hold your shoulders back work?

Braces that hold your shoulders back


Vero Beach chiropractor- I have had lots of questions about those posture braces and if they work.  They do help improve your posture however, these braces tend to deactivate and weaken the muscles that hold you upright and in good posture.  In the end, our posture worsens and you become dependent upon these devices to remain with your shoulders back and standing up straight. By forcing yourself to stand up straight and keeping your ears over your shoulders will solve your posture issues while strengthening the muscles designed to do this.  The bottom line is that these braces are not that good for your body.  Your mom was right when she said to stand up straight.  Dr. Thomas Harmody is a chiropractor at Vero Walk-In Chiropractic and Wellness in Vero Beach, Fl.
