Posture Braces, Supports & Taping

posture

Good posture can be retrained with the use of a posture brace, posture support, posture exercises or even posture taping. 

Posture braces can address poor control in the lower back or in the mid to upper back and shoulders during the initial phase when you have no or little postural awareness.

As your posture improves with your posture exercises to address muscle strength and endurance you can transition from a heavy to lower support posture brace. Further weaning to kinesiology postural taping may be taken to help achieve the final transition to perfect posture without a posture brace or posture taping.

You'll find a wide selection of the various posture braces, supports and posture taping options available on the webpage below.
