You should also be mindful of your posture throughout the day to maximize the efficacy of these programs.HOW LONG UNTIL I SEE MY POSTURE IMPROVE?Consistency is key! Some people will see postural improvements in as little as 2-4 weeks; but for most it will be the 8-12 weeks range. Some may require 14-16 weeks to see improvement. The key is to remain consistent with them and keep in mind that it took a long time for these changes to occur; it will take some work to reverse them.
