PostureCurve & Supine Techniques

My name is Dr. Pat E Belcher.  The Intracell, Stick, FootWheel and TriggerWheel are my children. Now, this is my story.  In 1950, I fractured my lumbar spine playing high school football. posturecurve1

Fifty-four years later I am able to stand fully erect for the first time since the injury.  I now have a “normal” lumbar curve with unimpaired posture at the age of 70.

This is a testament to the PostureCurve.  In fact, that’s how it got its name – my posture and my curve.  The PostureCurve successfully stretched the contracted low back muscles that had flattened my stiff back and impaired my erect posture for 54 years.  What more can I say!

If you suffer with back stiffness, you will notice a difference after the initial stretching session of just 3 minutes – I guarantee it.

According to a candid review by Kathleen Crandall on March 11, 2015, the Posture Curve is one of the Top 5 Massage Tools of 2015. The following is an excerpt of her article on exercise equipment, fitness, massage, and related topics. Also, below you’ll find a link to the complete article:

“As I’m writing this review, I have my posture curve propped up behind me and massaging and supporting my back. If you could see me now! Eyes like Buddha. I often times have tight back muscles up and down either side of my spine. Much of this is due to my posture and having weaker muscles skipping out on their job. Yes, even Pilates teacher and massage therapists have their moments. When I saw this massage tool at TRE (The Running Event) in Austin this past winter, I was immediately drawn to it. If you’re drawn to a firm and specific pressure, this tool is for you. If you slouch all day at your desk, this is for you too.
When you place it behind you, the points press on either side of your spine. The pressure provides feedback to your pelvis and spine and helps your spine to find its natural curves. Of course you can dig into it and reap benefits of a trigger point type of massage while you’re sitting at your desk, (your coworkers might wonder why you’re squirming and oohing and ahing in your seat) but if you place the posture curve so that the points are on either side of your low back and you lean back into your chair, voila, you find your natural curve in your low back. Superb relief from the norm of rounding and slumping forward.
If you wish to get more intense with it, lie down. Be forewarned though, the Posture Curve is hard and offers no cushion. Low back pain is often associated with tightness in the glutes as well. Place the Posture Curve at tender spots on the hips and simply breathe while the tension releases. This is no joke. For those of you who like specific work and deep therapeutic relief, I do recommend this tool. For those who recoil at the thought of pressure points, you may have to work your way up to using this tool for trigger point work.

The Posture Curve also partnered up with the makers of The Stick and The Trigger Wheel. Both are equally great massage tools to have on hand or keep in the office. I especially like the Trigger Wheel. You can throw it in your purse.” (Read full article: Top 5 Massage Tools of 2015).
