A glimmer of hope!

I have had a bad hunched down posture all my life, which in this last decade has caused me a lot of pain in my thoracic and lumbar spine. I actually have a bulged disc in my mid-back because of my posture. So this is a cautionary tale for those who are just starting with the bad posture!
I have a spine specialist, I do injections, and have had a physical therapist, or many, for the past 2-3 years, so I am aware that I need to strengthen certain muscles, try to have a good posture as long and as often as I can, and have been seeing PTs several days a week, working hard on all my exercises. The problem is I have crazy hectic days and I can't remember, and when I do, if I do it for a lengthy (like 5 minutes!) period of time, my not-used-to-working muscles hurt, so... Enter posture correction devices!
I've had a couple over the years, but I found them of no use to me because they were too tight, painful and restraining in a way. Very uncomfortable, definitely not something I would want to wear for one hour, let along a day.
This is quite interesting. I've been wearing it for about 5 hours now and I only feel happy when I remember it's on because it's gently pushing me to keep my posture, and when I see myself in this correct posture, I feel good!
But you absolutely need to do your homework and do your exercises ALONGSIDE wearing this, I don't think this is a miracle cure for bad posture, and they don't claim that either.
I'm really excited about this helping me get to a healthy posture because it gives me hope that I have honestly lost the past year. I definitely recommend it!
