What are your complaints regarding the posture? Are you suffering from any medical condition or take any daily medications? What is your weight and height?

Dear customer,

Basically to correct the posture the first and the most important advice is exercises which build your core strength and stretch. Your core supports your upper body and a strong core will give you more strength to hold yourself up. To know more about the exercises that are beneficial please read the below articles:

You may also do yoga and stretching exercises to build your core strength.

Take care.
