The 'BackJoy' orthodic a perfect relief for bad backs during National Correct Posture Month
Did you know that May is National Correct Posture Month?
But as goofy as that sounds, I like the idea or raising awareness for bad posture. I can relate to how slumping and slouching destroys the body and leads to chronic back pain.
One of the occupational hazards of being a golf writer is having a bad back. Or a golfer for that matter. Just ask Fred Couples.
As golf writers, not only are we twisting our spines into a pretzel on some of the world’s greatest courses, but the soreness and tightness tends to get worse on the 5-hour flight home and even uglier the next week sitting in front of a computer for hours on end banging out the story.
I’ve started using a product that I think will help in my long-standing fight with a tepid back. The BackJoy: The Back Orthotic has really helped my posture. Instead of sloppily sitting in my computer chair, it forces me sit tall and proud. It is a Class I medical device that shifts user’s center of gravity to the front of their body, removing harmful pressure from the spine and back areas.
“Many people greet our product with a lot of skepticism, said Preston Willingham, inventor of the BackJoy. “They either feel it’s just too simple to really work, or they have purchased one of the hundreds of other back care products with little results. After using BackJoy, the skeptics are quickly turned into believers who are surprised that such a simple-looking product can be so revolutionary.”
Be sure to read the directions before you sit on the BackJoy. The first inclination is to use it to prop up your lower back. But you’re actually supposed to sit into it with your tailbone firmly planted on the BackJoy, then “scootch” to the back of the chair. The curves of the Backjoy lift the spine into a proper upright position. I love that you can use it anywhere, sitting in the office or even watching TV on the couch or heaven forbid, in a pew at church.
The product even comes with a directory of quick stretches that can be done at your chair, another deterrent for back pain. I know the BackJoy will never cure my pain – the two vertebrae I fractured as a child will probably always haunt me – but at least this provides some affordable relief that doesn’t require a visit to the chiropractor.
