Having proper alignment goes beyond maintaining an excellent posture, it can also help prevent long-term pain. Realigning your spine and spinal cord with a Butt-Thotics Wedge promotes better signalling of nerve impulses, increases your range of motion, restores circulation, and helps your muscles relax.
Living with chronic pain makes it difficult to lead a happy, healthy life. The Butt-Thotics Wedge aids in improving pain and chronic pain that has been caused by nerve impingement so you can manage or fix your pain and improve your quality of life.
The Salter Method is the first of its kind, assessing for nerve pain that is associated with a lateral pelvic tilt while seated. If a lateral deviation is detected, a Butt-Thotics Wedge can be used to provide a level foundation. Sitting with proper posture alignment improves blood flow, helps keep your nerves and blood vessels healthy and active, and supports your muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Standing on level ground, barefoot, in front of a mirror, place your thumbs on top of your hip bones to determine which hip is lower than the other.
Lay the wedge on your chair so it sits under half your butt on your lower side. Sit with your butt bone on top of the thickest part of the wedge. Your hips and knees should each be at a 90º angle. Based on your needs, you can lay a second wedge on top of the first, with the thin side placed towards the back of your chair.
Leveling your hips provides relief from pain, aches, and pressure. Remove the pad and replace it to feel the difference that Butt-Thotics provides. Enjoy the freedom of sitting with comfort!
When your hips aren’t level, one side of your body is constantly being strained all the way from your hips to your head, restricting blood flow and causing permanent nerve damage. Reducing strain on your spinal cord relieves you from lower back pain and aching, mid-back pain and aching, hip pain and aching, neck pain and aching, shoulder pain and aching, numbness in the arms and shoulders, numbness in the legs and feet, and headaches and migraines.
Butt-Thotics was born when Linda Salter made the ground-breaking discovery that her patients were 2 to 3 times more tilted while in a seated position. Linda’s unique approach that entails conducting a postural assessment from a seated position prompted the Butt-Thotics Wedge, the first product to correct your posture and level your hips in a seated position.
