Do You Have Posture and Back Issues?


We know what it’s like. Sitting at a desk for hours slaving (or gaming) away at the keyboard wreaks havoc on your body. Scrolling through your favorite social media feed on your phone doesn’t help either. 

That hunched posture impacts more than just your appearance; it influences your health in ways you may not have thought of. Allow us to enlighten you… and then empower you to do something about it!

1. Leads to Fewer Aches and Pains
When we sit and stand with our bodies aligned, it puts less strain on our muscles and joints, which is the cause of our discomfort. By consciously improving your posture, you can kiss many of those nagging backaches and neck pains goodbye.

2. Boosts Your Energy Levels
Slumping or slouching can compress your lungs and restrict proper breathing, resulting in decreased oxygen intake. Maintaining upright posture allows for optimal lung expansion and better oxygen flow, leaving you feeling more energized and ready to conquer the day.

3. Enhances Confidence and Presence
Standing tall with your shoulders back exudes confidence and projects a positive image to those around you. The way you carry yourself can influence not only how others perceive you but also how you perceive yourself.

4. Improves Digestion and Elimination
Sitting or standing with proper alignment aids in maintaining the natural curvature of your spine, which, in turn, supports optimal organ function. This can contribute to improved digestion and regular bowel movements, promoting a healthier gut.

5. Enhances Mental Clarity and Focus
 Maintaining an upright posture can enhance blood circulation to the brain, providing it with the oxygen and nutrients it needs for optimal function. This, in turn, can sharpen your focus, concentration, and overall cognitive performance.

6. Prevents Future Health Issues
Poor posture over time can contribute to the development of chronic conditions, including musculoskeletal problems and even respiratory issues. Taking proactive steps to improve your posture can be a preventative measure against future health concerns.

Back pain managed

In just a few short days on the Back & Core program I saw a meaningful difference. I felt freedom from my back pain related to muscle spasms that I haven't felt in several months.

With the revamp of the app, they are constantly working to make it the best version of itself. They take ideas and suggestions seriously.

Knee pain is fading

I started using MoveU because I had nagging knee pain that bothered me when running, biking, skiing, etc. It was really bumming me out so I decided to try MoveU Knee, Ankle and Foot Program. I am about to finish week 2 and my knees already feel much better!

Nov 6

Comprehensive and engaging

The programs cover how to balace the whole body to minimize (or ward off any future) pain that’s caused by poor alignment. There’s an overall upbeat tone in the videos that makes you want to try your best.

Better than physical therapy

MoveU is a great program and worth the subscription. I've used it to supplement my normal weightlifting, cardio, and yoga. The monthly cost is about the same as one or two yoga classes, so it pays for itself. The app is very intuitive and well built. I'm glad to see they put in the up front work, and they are continually involved in the content. If you want to fix your issues at home, this is the best way.

To all the people that have tried every intervention. To the hopeless and helpless feeling. After all these years of disappointment with the healthcare system, there IS a solution. Dr. Mike and the Moveu Team are dedicated to get you into your healing journey. Not just the physical but also the mental - which is just as important. I love how different this program is from everything else I have ever tried. Love you guys.

Excellent Program

This is the fix for the long haul and I preach it to my family and friends. Going to a PT is great but they only work on the area your insurance allows which doesn't always fix the overall issue. Thank you Dr. Mike for creating this!

Knowledge at your fingertips

Well worth the subscription. I am a chiropractor and I refer to this program for all of my patients. For every diagnosis Dr. Mike and his crew demonstrate an appropriate stretch and/or exercise along with the progression and regression specific to their level of recovery. I highly recommend this app to anyone interested in treating musculoskeletal ailments whether it be your own or your patients. It's one of the few apps purchased that I feel I got my monies worth and more, you won't be dissapointed.

I appreciate MoveU

I have a bulging disc and I am very appreciative of this program and the knowledge I have gained on how body mechanics are all connected and what things to do to get better. I also feel the people really care about their members.

Most supportive and effective tool

This app is super easy to use. Love that I always have my videos with my on the go and the support from the coaches and community is invaluable along the way. Working through 4 herniated discs and it's the first program where I'm feeling hopeful and confident!

Easy to use and interactive!

It works!

I love this program, and I'm not easily impressed. They know their stuff really well and it's designed in a great way with how it progresses. The core is especially a game changer.

Get out of pain - the ultimate solution!!

I signed up for MoveU because I had this nagging pain for years with absolutely no way of fixing it because no one ever broke it down and showed me how to understand my problem. I love the short classes was well as the deeper live classes. I believe that I'm a lifer and it's one of the most important subscriptions I pay for in my life.

Your very best version just a MoveU away 🙌

All in one app, to realign and reset your whole body. In the most natural, gradual, and far from the invasive way. I have been a walking injury from sports for 30+ years...I never thought I could find an integral solution.
