Are you feeling like your posture is not as upright as it used to be? Do you often suffer from back pain? If so, there’s a good chance that improving your posture could help relieve some of the discomfort.

Fortunately, with the right support and intervention, proper posture can be achieved without having to resort to expensive treatments. Learn to do just that by reading on! 

Mind your posture

1. Mind your posture

Whether you’re standing up or sitting down, be mindful of your posture and make a habit of maintaining one.

2. Exercise

Certain types of exercises like yoga or other activities that promote body awareness may help improve your posture by strengthening your core

3. Maintain a healthy weight

Having extra weight may lead to weaker abdominal muscles. This, in turn, can lead to issues in the pelvis and spine, leading to back pain.

Upper cross

*For this taping protocol, you would need another person’s help since it is a hard-to-reach area.

  1. Maintain an ideal posture, correcting the head, neck, shoulders, and arms. Remember to not overcorrect.
  2. Have your partner measure a compression strip running from one shoulder to the opposite shoulder.
  3. Next, measure the 1st and 2nd security strips running from the base of the skull towards the mid-back.
  4. Round the tape ends.
  5. Apply the compression strip with 50% tension running from the center of the back towards either shoulder.
  6. Next, apply the 1st security strip starting at the base of the skull and running towards the mid-back with 50% tension.
  7. Then, apply the 2nd security strip again starting at the base of the skull, and running towards the mid-back with 50% tension.
