April 2, at 6: The shirts with built in bands that help with posture and muscle alignment have the ability, according to research from the Kerlin Jobe Orthopedic Foundation, to stabilize and increase rotator cuff function one of the muscle groups that helps stabilize the shoulder.
Most sport clothing companies, from Under Armour to Nike, make compression clothing that uniformly squeezes parts of the body. Perhaps the next step has been taken with the AlignMed concept to make functional clothing to apply pressure and help muscles, tendons, bones and joints, align more physiologically.
This might allow mere mortals the opportunity to catch up to their pro athlete counterparts. Work and family time get in the way. Pro athletes, on the other hand, can devote an 8 or 10 hour work day to their therapy regimens. And wearing the shirt all day long at work, whether it is on the playing field or in the office may help prevent injuries caused by poor posture and muscle fatigue.
Every patient is different and the treatment options presented and chosen will depend upon their injury, their underlying medical status and how active they were and will want to be after recovery. Gordon and how they recover from their injuries. And as the baseball season begins, will players who strain or damage their shoulders look to physical therapy and clothing as an alternative to surgery. Because as Kevin Durant can attest, surgery is not a sure thing.
I would like to know how atrophy is avoided when the clothing is doing the work. How is it designed to avoid atrophy and increase muscle firing? I am interested in buying their products, in particular to help with postural issues, but just would like more information….
I reached out to the developers of the Posture Shirt at Alignmed for your answer. Stephen Hochschuler of the Texas Back Institute: The answer lies in physiology or physical logic. The dynamic resistance facilitates muscle retraining, joint alignment and movement performance. The Alignmed principles mirror physical therapy treatments where weight training, Therabands, stretching, etc…are used to apply controlled resistance to rehab or prevent an injury. Alignmed is a therapy or workout you can wear.
As to how often one should use the product, the answer is personal. However, it would be hard or illogical to argue that a tool to help practice good posture is something you should do daily and throughout life. Our goal was to build the bridge that would make it easy for the user to practice good posture without having to think about it.
Thank you so much, that explains everything that I needed to know, I will be ordering one of the several styles as soon as I can determine which is right for me!
