Bad posture can strain your spine, sure, but also your muscles and joints. Chronic poor posture makes your balance worse and even compresses your insides, making it harder for your lungs and intestines to their thing. Though flawless, unbroken posture isn’t necessary, many Americans have lots of room for improvement. If it’s not enough to get up and move around during the day, wear one of these posture correctors to give yourself extra encouragement to sit up straight and tall.
