Stop Slouching! How SpineAlign® Can Save Your Posture
In case you didn't notice, we at SpineAlign.com take posture VERY seriously! Next time you're at work, ask one of your co-workers to take a look at your posture while you sit in your office chair. Is your head up and are your shoulders back? Probably not. But if you are sitting in correct posture, nice job! How about when you're walking or standing? If you're not in correct posture then you're putting an enormous amount of stress on your spine. "Who cares" you might say. Your back doesn't hurt so everything must be good, right? Wrong actually. In fact, posture can play a dramatic role, (both positive and negative), in your overall health. So what are we forgetting? Ah yes, sleeping posture. This one is tricky because once you're sleeping, you likely won't know that you're sleeping in incorrect posture, that is unless you wake up with symptoms like a headache or migraine, back or neck pain, numbness and tingling in your arms and hands, etc. etc. etc. So what's causing these symptoms? For millions and millions of people these symptoms are being caused by harmful stress on your head, neck, upper back and spine because you're using an ordinary, store bought pillow. The vast majority of pillows will NOT keep you in correct posture. In fact, most ordinary pillows are causing serious harm by adding unwanted stress to your head, neck, upper back and spine. You want (and need), a pillow that's going to relieve harmful stress while keeping you comfortable so you can sleep through the night. In my opinion, I truly believe that if every person used a pillow like the SpineAlign Pillow there would be millions of people who would no longer need medications for these types of symptoms. It's unfortunate that pillow manufacturers don't take this into consideration, but they're also not trained in the biomechanics of the spine like Dr. Loth is which is why he invented this pillow out of necessity.
