Clothing That Improves Posture and Eases Shoulder, Neck and Back Pain

Why some doctors, elite athletes wear these shirts

Even a little improvement, however, can mean a lot for people with chronic back or shoulder problems. “My daughter saw an article about the posture shirt, and it looked like something that might help me,” says Polly Quain, 80, who had extensive spinal fusion surgery to treat arthritis before she tried the Alignmed shirt.  “I’ve been going to physical therapy for about a year, relying on the shirt and my exercises.” She still experiences pain and weakness in her arms, she says. “But when I’m wearing the shirt, I do feel more upright and stronger.”

Ben Hailey, 67, works full time at a job that involves attending trade shows, where he’s often on his feet all day.  “I’ve had back and shoulder problems ever since 1980, when I had back surgery,” says Hailey, who lives in Madison, Miss. “After two or three days at a trade show, I’d hurt in every part of my body.”  A year ago he started wearing the Alignmed posture shirt under his dress shirt. “What a difference it made,” he says. “My shoulders are more erect. My whole body shape has changed. I’m having a lot less pain and stiffness. What can I say? I feel 10 years younger.”
