GABRIALLA POSTURE CORRECTORS WILL STRAIGHTEN OUT WHAT AILS A MOTHER’S BODY   “Sit up straight.” How many times have we heard that phrase growing up? Whether in school or at home, it was the second most uttered phrase next to, “Eat your vegetables.” If a woman has good posture, she reaps a world of benefits, including decreasing the wear on joint surface, preventing fa- tigue, backache and muscular pain, and contributing to a posi- tive physical appearance. What’s more, correct posture helps to improve breathing, providing more oxygen to organs and other internal systems, even improving functioning of the digestive system. That’s the good news. The bad news is that poor posture can create a multitude of physical issues, including: bad circulation; chronic shoulder, neck and back pain; constant fatigue; her- niated discs; misalignment in the body; and limited range of motion. What causes bad posture? There are a variety of factors, some hereditary, some injury related, others the result of stress and even poor mental attitude. Just sitting in a “slouching” position – like your teachers and parents told you not to do – can be a big contributor. Pregnant women and new moms have additional factors working against them. They carry their babies a lot, whether internally while pregnant or externally after birth. They’re con- stantly bending over a crib. They’re tired a great deal of the time, which makes standing up straight difficult. Just the act of breastfeeding can encourage bad posture. Keeping their bodies straight can be a daily struggle. If a pregnant woman or new mother has a postural issue, there are a variety of treatment approaches available to her. However, regardless of what form the treatment takes, it’s very possible that a posture corrector will be part of that treatment. If so, the Gabrialla Corrector for Thoracic Lumbo-Sacral Or- thosis is one she needs to seriously consider. Recommended by doctors specifically for women to correct posture and provide support for the abdomen, lumbosacral, and middle and upper back areas, it is ideal for treating and preventing scoliosis, spinal problems, osteochondrosis, osteopo- rosis, lumbago, kyphosis, and radiculitis. Designed to fit the contours of a woman’s body, the two flex- ible metal stays, removable anterior and posterior rigid pads, criss-cross design, reinforced straps, and extra shoulder sleeves all combine to provide the best in comfort and support, wheth- er for an expectant mother, a brand new one, or any woman with postural problems. Poor posture is not something to take lying down. A medical professional should identify the issue. And if necessary, a Gabri- alla or ITA-MED Posture Corrector can help straighten out the problem - literally. www.gabrialla.com - A division of ITA-MED Co. gabrialla@itamed.com | 1-888-9-ITA-MED
