Sleep Correctly

Healthier standing, sitting and sleeping habits will certainly reduce neck, head and back ache, pinched nerves, arm and shoulder pain, insomnia and mental fatigue. It’s that simple! Sleep Correctly Do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff and tired and looking a little wrinkled? We spend one third of our life sleeping, so it’s in our best interests to do it right. Sleeping on your back is by far the best sleeping position. Using a good quality, low profile pillow supports the natural forward curve of the neck and keeps your spine in natural alignment. Sleeping on your back will not put pressure and stress on your shoulders and hips and will not wrinkle your face (in fact, gravity will smooth the lines on your face overnight!). It is a good idea to place a bolster under your knees to relax your lower back. Sleeping on your side is the second best sleeping position, as long as you use proper neck support to keep your spine straight. It is a good idea to place a bolster or a pillow between your knees to relax your hips and lower back. Please note that sleeping on your side will put pressure on the hip and shoulder you sleep on, and could eventually lead to pain and early degeneration. m-man-2.gifDrPosture® recommends that you avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this position places stress your back and neck due to sustained head rotation for several hours through the night. Over time, it may promote early spinal degeneration. Now that you know what to do, it’s all up to you. Consider our “To Do List’ above and download our simple exercises that can transform your life. Here’s to your good posture!


Correct Sitting Posture

Healthier standing, sitting and sleeping habits will certainly reduce neck, head and back ache, pinched nerves, arm and shoulder pain, insomnia and mental fatigue. It’s that simple! Sit Correctly When resting your back against a car seat, in front of the television, at your desk or at school, remember to perform the ManubriumLift®. Make sure your buttocks touch the back of your chair, as that will help to shift your head back over your shoulders. A lumbar roll can be used to help you maintain the normal curves in your back. Bend your knees at a right angle (use a foot rest or stool if necessary). Keep your feet flat on the floor and try not to cross your legs. When sitting forward while eating, at your computer or when writing, it is good to tip your seat down slightly at the front if possible, or use a sacral block (chair wedge) to prevent your pelvis from tipping back, which causes slouching. "Blocking" your pelvis will make it easier and more comfortable to maintain an upright position. Now that you know what to do, it’s all up to you. Consider our “To Do List’ above and download our simple exercises that can transform your life. Here’s to your good posture!

"We all know how to operate and maintain many sophisticated mechanical devices, yet we don’t look after our most important one - our body. I often see people who don’t know how to perform proper standing, sitting or sleeping positions. When I position a patient in a proper standing or sitting position, the most common reaction I get is that it is easy to do, feels good and is almost effortless."

Thoracic Pillow® – What on earth is that?

  Our modern day life places our bodies under different kinds of stresses and demands than nature intended. When we our body weight is not spread squarely over our skeleton, we put strain on the muscles of our neck and lower back. Apart from chronic fatigue, this can cause pain and premature joint damage. Using the ThoracicPillow® is a fantastic way to reset the posture in the mornings. It reverses most common postural faults. The Thoracic Pillow® is adjustable in height and length to fit most people. Please refer to diagrams for proper use. It is molded from a special foam that is designed to be soft enough to fit comfortably under your spine. Some areas are firmer in order to provide the necessary support for proper neck, chest and lower back alignment. Instructions: Simply lay on the pillow for 10 minutes. Place a bolster under your knees to relax your lower back. It’s best to use the pillow in the morning and before going to sleep at night. To gain the most benefit of your ThoracicPillow®, aim to use all sections as illustrated. If you find this uncomfortable, start using the pillow by lying on sections A & B or A & C until you are ready to use all three sections together. It is normal to experience slight discomfort when using the pillow for the first few times, as its aim is to change old postural patterns. Please click here to get your ThoracicPillow®


One Step, A Few Seconds, Better Health…

The Manubrium is a bone situated at the top of the sternum. If you run one finger down the front of your neck to the bottom of your neck, you will end up at the top of the manubrium bone (the episternal notch). That was the hardest part, now all you have to do is lift it!This is a simple and practical way to immediately improve your posture. Try it as you read this. Just lift that bone straight upwards (don’t overdo it) and feel how much less strain is on your neck muscles, how your chest opens up and you can breathe more easily! You can do this anywhere, anytime and it works instantly. It is best to use ‘triggers’ to remind you to maintain the lift, such as drinking water, brushing teeth, sitting down, standing up etc. The more you do the ManubriumLift®, the longer you will be able to hold it. Here are just some of the benefits of maintaining the ManubriumLift®: Your head and neck will shift back to rest over your shoulders. It will decrease the hump at your upper back. Relieve stress of the muscles in your neck and upper back. Reduce the pressure on joints in the front of your neck and chest. Your chest will lift up. Increase your lung capacity. Decrease the pressure on your abdominal organs. The top part of your lower back will lift and shift forward. It will relieve stress on your lower back. Decrease pain. Increase productivity. You’ll look taller and thinner. You’ll look smarter, more confident and secure in yourself. It will help you age more successfully and add to your quality of life. Imagine gaining all that with a simple movement that anyone can learn in seconds! The reason why the ManubriumLift® is more effective than other methods and much easier to perform is that lifting your manubrium moves your head, chest and lower back into their correct positions SIMULTANEOUSLY. If you just move one region of your body (say, your head) irrespective of the other regions, it’s uncomfortable. Try it. That’s why it was hard to follow Mother’s orders to stand up straight!   Using the ThoracicPillow® is a fantastic way to reset the posture in the mornings. It reverses most common postural faults.
