For many of the Sacramento patients coming to Body Fix Therapies for orthopedic massage, poor posture has contributed to the pain they experience on a daily basis. While our muscles are capable of handling a wide variety of positions and activities throughout the day, bad postural habits can put a strain on specific nerves and muscle groups. Orthopedic massage effectively relieves the pain and dysfunctional holding patterns caused by this strain, the best thing a patient can do is avoid the positions that promote the discomfort in the first place!
Changing postural habits, however, can be a difficult task to accomplish through will power alone. To assist in making positive changes, various types of posture bands are available that help people avoid body positions that lead to muscular strain. The bands thereby aid the user to eliminate pain caused simply by the way they sit, work, walk or stand. They help to re-train the muscles to be positioned in a healthy, balanced position. Unfortunately, some of these bands are quite expensive, leaving many patients to work with their “strength of will” alone, with varying success.
For our patients with postural issues, Body Fix Therapies has found a solution! We now offer an inexpensive alternative to pricey posture bands that is both customized for every client and effective. You can purchase your own posture band to end bad habits and reduce discomfort for only $5. To encourage our patients to adopt better postural habits, Body Fix Therapies is offering a free customized posture band after an orthopedic massage throughout the month of August.
