I Tried Tons of Posture-Correcting Products—These 6 Actually Helped
I won't lie. My posture has always lacked a little bit, and things definitely deteriorated during the pandemic when I was getting out less and sitting a whole lot more. At the end of 2020, I actually had an incident that messed up my lower back to the point that I struggled to even roll over in the middle of the night. Big yikes.
It took me a few stubborn days of aggressive googling and magical thinking ("It'll be fine…"), a workout I really shouldn't have attempted, and finally the insistence of my husband to be more proactive. So I reluctantly scheduled a visit to the chiropractor—and thus began my journey of posture rectification.
The first thing the chiropractor asked me was, "What's your desk situation?" Admittedly, my desk situation was also not ideal, often doing work on the couch or at the kitchen table. On that day, I committed to improving my standing, sitting, and walking posture. Along the way I have tried a lot of products, but these are the items that have actually helped make a difference.
