How to choose the most suitable corrector posture
In our magazine, we will treat today a very common ailment among different types of people, either by age or by diagnostic pathologies. We will discuss back problems and how to choose back corrector posture.
When the spine is misaligned for long periods of time (typically in the case of improper posture), a large number of medical problems can occur. These include back, neck and joint pain, migraine headaches, symptoms of dizziness or lightheadedness, blurred vision, fatigue and many more. Overall, women are more affected by adverse effects than men, but symptoms may be common in people of any age.
Fortunately, there are many non-medical and non-surgical solutions that can help people improve their posture, avoid these health problems, and look and feel better.
Some people are born with scoliosis – a lateral curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the pre-puberty growth period – or have a physical problem that affects posture and/or walking, most people’s problems occur as a result of poor exercise or eating habits or the use of inappropriate techniques during daily activities including sitting, exercising or even sleeping.
Back braces are available for men, women and children. The truth is, it doesn’t end there. Nowadays, back braces are produced for running, sleeping, sports and car use, and so on.
One way to complement the use of devices such as the ones we are going to see is the execution of exercises that help to strengthen the back.
All these symptoms can be alleviated and corrected if we use a backpack. The espaliers are trunk orthoses that remind us of the proper posture.
In our catalog of Discubre we have several types of backpack, but before entering into its description it is important to differentiate between backpack and clavicular orthoses. Patients often ask themselves this question.
What is the difference between a back brace and a clavicular orthosis?
When we talk about a back brace, we are referring to an elastic (8-shaped) and adjustable brace, which is worn like a vest on the upper back. This orthosis is indicated as a reminder of correct posture, postural correction of a kyphotic attitude of the back (loaded back) and in mild dorsalgia.
The most important thing to take into account is that this backpack seeks to correct the posture thanks to an elastic fabric, it is placed during the day so that when the shoulders are falling down, it bothers us in the armpit part. This way we remember the posture and we go correcting it. It gives very good results, you can find them in two fabrics, breathable and normal and in different sizes.

When we talk about a clavicular orthosis, we are referring to a RIGID and immobilizing orthosis, which immobilizes the shoulders in retropulsion (backward). This type of orthosis is indicated for clavicle fractures and is used after surgery.
In no case is it indicated to correct posture or kyphosis (hump). If a person wants to correct posture and wears a clavicular brace, what can happen is that the musculature of the shoulders atrophies and eventually cause a deformity.
The clavicular orthosis is indicated for the postoperative treatment of a clavicular fracture, this orthosis facilitates the formation of the callus of fracture by means of the retropulsion of the shoulders. There are several versions, pediatric adjustable and padded. Different sizes depending on the model. To choose the right size, you need to measure your chest contour.
