Pain and discomfort in the back, deformed posture, walking disorders — all this may indicate a curvature of the spine. There are three main types of pathology of the spinal column:
To date, the most effective method of dealing with such curvature is a posture corrector — a special orthopedic bandage that provides back support and gradually returns the spine to its natural anatomical position. Thus, with regular use of the corrector, after a few weeks you will notice the first results. What is the effectiveness of posture correctors? What types of orthopedic correctors exist and how to choose the right model? Where to buy a posture corrector? We asked medical specialists from Medtechnika Ortomedica to answer these and other questions.
Benefits of posture correctors
The main task of the orthopedic corrector is to securely fix the curved area of the spine in the correct position. In addition to anatomical fixation, posture correctors strengthen the muscular corset of the back, form a beautiful posture and promote accelerated recovery. Modern bandages for correcting the position of the spine are made from durable hypoallergenic materials that do not cause irritation. The posture corrector is easy to hide under outerwear, so the product will not cause inconvenience. The bandage is as simple and practical as possible in daily use. Also, the advantages of proofreaders include the following:
- Effective fight against curvature of the spine in the thoracic, lumbar and central zone.
- Support for the musculoskeletal system.
- Improvement of blood circulation.
- Formation of a beautiful and natural posture.
- Prevention of flat feet, as well as other diseases of the musculoskeletal system, which often occur against the background of spinal deformity.
In order for the orthopedic bandage to perform its main function qualitatively, it is necessary to choose the right corrector. An orthopedist or traumatologist will help you with this. The doctor must conduct an examination, establish the degree and shape of the curvature, after which it will be possible to decide which model of the posture corrector will be the best option for you.
Types of posture correctors
Orthopedic posture correctors differ depending on what type of curvature of the spine will be corrected. There are two main types of orthopedic bandages, namely:
- thoracolumbar posture corrector;
Thoracolumbar posture correctors fix the entire area of the torso, providing a compression effect not only on the upper, but also on the lower spine. In turn, reclinators provide fixation only of the upper part of the spinal column. The orthopedic reclinator brings the clavicles together and fixes the upper back. Thus, the alignment of the vertebral discs is carried out, the muscles are supported and the posture improves.
Regular use of the corrector as quickly as possible will relieve you of curvature, back pain and any manifestations of discomfort. As for the choice, the doctor should prescribe a posture corrector of the appropriate degree of rigidity after an individual consultation and diagnosis.
