Improving posture can have BIG health benefits and make pelvic floor exercises more efficient
We are seeing an epidemic of poor posture and it appears to be on the rise due to the influx of modern technology such as smartphones, tablets and gaming devices. We can spend up to 15 hours a day sitting when our bodies are designed for moving about so it’s no surprise we are suffering as a nation! According to a recent survey, up to 90% of us suffer from posture related aches and pains, so why aren’t we doing something about it?
The wedge with a coccyx cut out is a great way to maintain good posture when you drive or work at your desk. The simple action of sitting at your desk for prolonged periods of time is likely to cause you neck and lower back pain. This is due to the enormous pressure placed on your spine. These wedges are ideal for your car seat because they angle your body to a comfortable, easy driving position. Perfect for an office chair, they adopt the angle of the sitting position, tilting your pelvis forward and encouraging good posture.
The 8° wedge or the 11° degree wedge, which one is for you?
The 11° wedge is best for use in the car and for those weighing over 15stone/95kg. The 8° wedge is more suitable for those under this weight bracket.
Who suffers from posture problems?
The truth is that everyone suffers from posture problems. Both young and old alike, bad posture doesn’t discriminate. Bad posture can affect people of all ages, from teens slouching over to read their mobile phones, to office workers not adopting the correct sitting position and drivers who hunch over at the wheel. There are endless reasons for having bad posture but the good news is you can correct it.
Why Use a Wedge Cushion?
- Eases pressure on the base of the spine
- Helps encourage better posture
- Lightweight to carry/travel with
- Offers pelvic support and comfort
- Eases arthritis pain
- Can be used in any chair i.e wheelchair, car, sofa, office
Posture and the pelvic floor
Another important factor to remember when discussing bad posture is the affect it can have on your pelvic floor. A slumped forward posture can increase downward pressure on your pelvic floor – this is particularly relevant for women with pelvic prolapse problems, incontinence (bladder or bowel), with pelvic floor weakness after childbirth or with pelvic pain. Adopting the correct posture promotes deep, abdominal muscle activity which then helps to support your pelvic organs and promotes bladder control. Doing Kegels ladies? With the correct spinal alignment, your pelvic floor strengthening exercises will be at their most effective.
One wedge to rule them all
The wedge is great for a number of different ailments which cause pain and discomfort such as:
- Coccyx injury
- Post back / spinal injury
- Coccyx bruising
- Protecting the bottom of the spine against pressure sores
- Post hip surgery
- Arthritis pain
- Pain associated with pregnancy
- Damaged discs
- Facet joints in lower back
Your new wedge is covered with an attractive velour zipped cover and also comes complete with a carrying handle which makes it ideal for you to take with you wherever you may go. It also comes complete with an adjustable strap for fixing your wedge into place when you travel or when you need it secured to your office chair. The wedge is comfortable, effective and light weight. It also comes in a transparent carry case.
Don’t put up with bad posture any longer! Better posture means a better quality of life.
