We at Southland physical therapy use IntelliSkin because their products are focused on improving posture and alignment for enhanced well-being. They design and develop distinctive garments that have been proven to enhance posture and athletic performance.
The garments are designed to stimulate and send specific cues to the brain that cause your tight muscles to relax and the opposing under-used muscles to simultaneously contract and tone. The flow of information back and forth from the nerve receptors in the skin to the brain provide subconscious "coaching," instructing muscles to work together, function and protect joints from injury more efficiently.Muscle memory and improved postural awareness are created by maintaining improved alignment and balance during repetitive daily movements.
There are multiple benefits to the garments; first, roughly 80% of adults will be affected by back or neck pain, which can be greatly reduced by proper posture; second, our research has indicated that in addition to improving posture, IntelliSkin products improve athletic performance and reduce injury. Finally, good posture aligns the spine, allowing you to not only look better, but also feel better.
Anytime! Products can be worn when you’re working out, recovering from a workout, traveling or performing any activity of daily living. Depending on your level of posture fitness, in the beginning you can wear the garment for a half hour or several hours and increase the time as your body becomes more use to the garment.
