Below is a broad overview of some of the science and statistics related to poor posture.

For ongoing updates, updated research, and conclusive evidence that the Bax-U Posture Support System is the best back brace and most advanced product of its kind on the market, be sure to follow our blog.

According to the American Chiropractic Association:

  • 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time.
  • One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.
  • Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work. In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
  • Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic, meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
  • Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain – and that’s just for the more easily identified costs.
  • Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.

Consequences of Poor Posture

Kyphosis and Organ Disorder

Kyphosis is the technical term for the forward rounding of your upper back – the type of extreme rounding that might be called round back or hunchback. The condition is most common in older women, although it can occur at any age.

Mild kyphosis may lead to few problems outside of minor discomfort and appearance issues, but due to the positioning of the body in this abnormal position, severe cases can affect one’s lungs, nerves, and other tissues and organs. This will lead to major problems, and extreme cases (Hyper Khyphosis) can require surgery.

This is only one of many potential problems related to bad posture.

      BaX-U Posture Support System

      Albert Rosario, Romina Ghassemi D.C.

      Background: “For the past 17 years, I have seen notable change in my practice statistics relating to the change in ratio of more patients seeking care for upper back and neck pain & head ache in comparison to earlier years in practice of lower back injuries. This is simply due to the advancement of technology in the work field.”
      -Romina Ghassemi D.C.

      Method: Beginning on Ocotober 25th 2013, Opus Medical Center surveyed 28 patients to test effectiveness of the BaX-u Posture Support System. Using JTech Medical Tracker 5 software, we took preliminary Muscle Test measurements. AMA standards require us to take a measurement 4 times to assure an accurate measurement to prove validity. We then took a measurement once the patient was fitted with the appropriately sized BaX-u product. We then recorded the results and took the difference of the two numbers to show the percentage of improvement, or lack of. All results were positive, thus indicating we have found only improvements, some big and some small. Organized below is a simplified breakdown of age groups tested, the minimum and maximum improvement for each group as well as an average of all patients surveyed in each category.

      Results: When looking at the reports, what we pay attention to is the Overall Change in Before and After Muscle Strength.

      What we found was that our patients in the age range of 55 and older, saw the highest rate of strength improvement. The 2nd largest category of strength improvement is the age group of 25-40 years old. What we can take into consideration from this data is that the adults may benefit from this product as a result of postural degradation from sitting at a desk for years or sitting in a car for hours a day. By improving the posture of the patients and having the correct body mechanics we see an instant improvement of muscle strength, regardless of age group.Patients describe their experience everywhere from feeling taller to being able to sit more comfortably, to feeling a better upper body support, balance, and difference in muscle strength.
