July 13, 2011 — The Vitality Depot released a new protocol for the Postural SpiderTech application to retrain the scapular muscles and help correct rounded shoulders.
The new protocol indicates that 12 weekly applications of the Postural Spider on shoulder blades in progressively retracted positions may help reverse the years of plastic deformation of the scapular muscles.
Doctors may use diagnostic verbiage like forward head carriage syndrome, cervical kyphosis, and asymmetrical scapular distortion to describe poor posture; however, it is more important than just body image. Prolonged rounding of the shoulders can also restrict shoulder range of motion, accelerate degenerative changes in the neck, and contribute to diminished breathing capacity.
“Having the means to correct poor posture that is minimally invasive and can be supplemented with treatments, corrective exercises and stretching brings ‘Cosmetic Care’ into the world of chiropractic,” explains Mark Mandell, DC, president of The Vitality Depot. “Just like teeth whitening changed the paradigm in dentistry, postural correction can be a huge magnet to draw in new patients. The Postural SpiderTech application makes this easy and affordable for millions of future patients.”
