Holiday Gift Guide - Alignmed Posure Shirt
Ask the most respected golf fitness experts to tell you the most important physical attribute you need to play the game well, and most will answer “POSTURE!” Most golfers know good posture is the key to consistent play, but everyone is challenged with the need to program their brains for it while also thinking about the course conditions, the wind, the selected club, the pin placement and a myriad of other factors. Sure, we all stand tall and straight when we’re consciously thinking about it, but boy is it nearly impossible to keep it top of mind while we’re traversing the course. Now, having good posture throughout the entire game is as simple as putting on a shirt, a very special shirt!
The Alignmed Posture Shirt has posture enhancing bands sewn in to the material so it not only gives you that good posture, but it forces your muscles to focus, as well as their nerves, firing to give them optimal performance and reduce fatigue. Just ask pros Anna Nordqvist and Brett Massingham who suffers with Multiple Sclerosis.
And don’t worry that wearing the Alignmed Posture Shirt is cheating. It’s approved by the US Golf Association (USGA). The Association’s technical director issued a letter stating AlignMed’s Posture System “…has ben evaluated and it has been determined that it conforms to the Rules of Golf.”
Without getting too technical, the Alignmed Posture Shirt works like a very comfortable orthopedic shirt which covers the entire upper torso down to the lower hips to offer neurologic biofeedback that constantly reminds the skeleton and muscles to self-correct. Alignmed’s founder and inventor, Bill Schultz says “The shirts are not compression shirts which merely squeeze the body and are primarily worn for aesthetics, but they are hard working, effective devices used to balance and align your body, reduce inflammation, relax muscles and make your body perform passively so your brain can have fun while playing the game.”
Alignmed Posture Shirts have been recognized and written about in AARP Magazine, TIME Magazine, Forbes Magazine, The Wall St. Journal and a number of newspapers such as The Los Angeles Times. The company’s Advisory Panel is a “Who’s Who” of the Orthopedic surgery and international research world. World-class universities, teaching surgeons, and top professional team trainers are included.
The Challenge of Obtaining Good Posture, Especially for a Mature Person
Posture has become a very hot topic in the news of late, and there have been many new revelations on the importance of having good posture, as it’s at the very epicenter of a large list of important health issues. People should have listened to their parent’s orders to stand up straight but at the time it didn’t seem important. Now, modern medicine has recognized the vital role good posture plays in some of the most important aspects of our lives. Getting out, exercising, shunning a sedentary existence and moving are secrets to living a more healthy life with greater well-being. The good news is that a lifelong bad habit of poor posture can be helped.
The Alignmed Posture Shirt is a great gift for everyone, including seniors.
