The story and the expertise
Innovation born out of the experience
Healthcare professionals recognise that back pain and poor movement go hand in hand - something leading osteopath and PosturePlast creator Adam Dallison has been aware of for some time.
With over 20 years clinical experience treating patients from all walks of life, seeing similar scenarios and symptoms time after time caused by slouching, poor lifting and reaching, Adam was inspired to develop a real solution.
A new take on tried and tested methods
Adam uses medical tape in his treatments and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal injuries but realised that this wasn't something that people could do for themselves at home.
Adam spent a lot of time experimenting with various materials to recreate the complex lace pattern of taping and added the integrated X controller to enhance the effects. After testing with his own patients, Adam finally developed the PosturePlast you see today which delivers all the benefits of taping in an authentic, innovative and patented one-piece design.
Did you know that getting the back working and moving properly again helps the body to recover naturally? PosturePlast can help facilitate this, saving time and money by cutting out the need for further treatments.
Adam's back health hints and tips
Positive steps to improving your posture
PosturePlast is one of the most effective ways of improving posture and relieving lower back pain, but there are many things you can do, in addition to wearing PosturePlast, to improve your posture and back health.
When sitting, sit well back in the chair making sure your low back is well supported. A rolled towel in your lower back may help you keep this posture.
When standing, imagine a string attached to your head, pulling upwards. Bear weight equally on both feet, keep your knees relaxed and shoulders squared, not rounded.
When lying down, ideally the spine should be kept in a straight line. A firm mattress will help and pillows may help you achieve this position.
When lifting, stand with a wide stance close to the object you are picking up and keep your feet firm on the ground. Tighten your stomach muscles and lift the object using your leg muscles. Straighten your knees in a steady motion. Don't jerk the object up to your body.
Don't forget to keep moving - try not to sit for longer than 30 minutes without standing up, even for just 5 seconds. This will allow different muscles to contract and blood to flow around freely.
Anything you can do to help improve your posture will help to reduce your chances of having lower back pain, so the effort really is worth it.
