Exam and conclusion.
DrPosture® was founded by Dr. David Shahar, D.C. as it became evident that poor posture is affecting the vast majority of human kind. Dr. David has identified the need for more time-efficient and cost-effective solutions. In response to the poor posture epidemic, Dr. David invented the Thoracic Pillow and the concept of the Manubrium Lift®, (one step, a few seconds, better health!), together with other posture supporting products and concepts such as the Posture Kit and Stretching for Life™. DrPosture®’s ideas give practitioners and patients more solutions, options and flexibility toward their quest for better health, through the development of better posture, smarter image, less pain and better health.
