Treatment for neck pain with Posture Shirt

Neck pain and stiffness in the neck affect seven out of ten people once or more in life. As a rule, neck pain occurs slowly, but for some, they occur suddenly, for instance when placing one's neck in a poor position. In general, the issues come from poor posture at work, whether sitting, standing, lifting, but it can also come from a poor sleeping position. Other common posture problems that can cause discomfort include standing with your shoulders and chin pushed forward, working with your head down for extended periods as well as having a bad posture when sitting. Fortunately, something can be done to combat pain in the neck. The posture clothing from ActivePosture® is proven to alleviate your neck pain. A study conducted by Bern University of Applied Sciences in 2019 shows that 70% of those with neck pain feel that the frequency of their pain is less after they started wearing posture clothing from ActivePosture.* In the study, 1039 users were asked about their pain and tension in the head, neck, back and shoulders in daily life before and after they started using posture correction clothing from ActivePosture. The results speak for themselves: 85% feel that the product has had a positive (physical) effect on their posture, 70% feel that the frequency of their neck pain is less and 68% feel the intensity of their neck pain is reduced. If you have neck pain, then you have the option of trying the posture correcting clothing from ActivePosture for 30 days risk-free. Below you can see the responses of the 589 respondents who indicated that they were suffering from neck pain, before wearing the posture clothing.

In addition, posture clothing from ActivePosture® shows signs of relieving tension and pain. The three components (aches and pains, posture and posture awareness) correlate positively with each other, suggesting that improving one component also positively affects the other two. Based on the conclusion of this pilot project, further independent scientific studies have been initiated at the Bern University of Applied Sciences (RCT).

Pain in the neck

The hustle and bustle of modern life, combined with desk-bound work or standing in asymmetrical posture for long hours undoubtedly plays a role in the ever-increasing number of people with frequent or constant neck pain. And as the neck pain wasn't enough, often headaches follow. Pain is the body's warning system telling us that we need to change something. Since the neck is a very sensitive area, the neck is often the area where the pain is first felt. One of the typical causes of neck pain is poor posture when slouching in front of the computer. As we "fall" forward, we are constantly forcing our muscles to tighten so as not to collapse completely. At the same time, we shoot our neck and vertebrae backwards to look at the screen ending in a posture that, in the long run, causes problems with neck pain, and maybe even chronic neck pain.

Neck pain and headache

Different type of work presents different postural problems. Office works lead to sitting many hours in an inactive position, manual labour leads to strain on the body from, for instance, heavy lifting or doing work in an asymmetrical position. Regardless of job or lifestyle, you may experience an unnatural stretch at the back leading to a collapse of the muscles. This stretch can cause headaches, pain, stiffness and sore neck. If you exercise regularly, you may be able to combat some of these symptoms. But if you spend most of your day in unfavourable body positions headaches or pain in the neck will often sneap up on you. The Posture Shirt™ from ActivePosture can both prevent and relieve neck pain and headaches. The ActivePosture shirt is a "one-of-a-kind" product with the patented, unique NeuroBand™ technology, inspired by Kinesio-taping and working by reflecting the characteristics of the musculature to promote the right posture.

Treatment of neck pain

Treatment of neck pain can be done in different ways depending on the cause of the pain. However, as mentioned earlier, one of the causes of neck pain is often that we have work where we move our body very little. By sitting long hours in "wrong" or overworked positions we cause ourselves to get neck pain. One of the methods to treat or relieve neck pain is, for some, the use of the Posture Shirt™ from ActivePosture. The shirt helps you to improve your posture and relieve the exposed area, whether you are active or sedentary. Evidence of the effectiveness of the shirt can be seen in the independent Swiss study presented on this page showing that 70% of surveyed users with neck pain feel that the frequency of their neck pain has decreased after they started wearing the Posture Shirt™ from ActivePosture. The shirt can be used in most everyday situations, at work, when you work out, drive a car or go for a walk. The Posture Shirt™ from ActivePosture is made of a unique composition of materials that provides a durable and breathable posture correcting t-shirt that retains its elasticity in everyday use. To further benefit from wearing the shirt, we recommend that the clothing is used as a supplement to an otherwise healthy lifestyle including exercise.
