Not only does poor posture often cause pain and stiffness, it can also increase the risk of developing arthritis.

Arthritis refers to a group of diseases linked to inflammation and stiffness in the joints. The most common kind of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is often caused by aging or joint injury. Arthritis can occur in any of the body’s joints, such as in the neck, shoulders, spine, hands, knees, hips, or feet.

What are the symptoms of arthritis?

Since there are different types of arthritis, symptoms may vary across different cases. Common symptoms of osteoarthritis include swelling, pain, tenderness, stiffness, or loss of mobility in or around the affected joint.

What causes arthritis?

Having poor habitual alignment often increases the risk of developing osteoarthritis. When you’re hunched over, the weight of your head places a lot of pressure on your spine, shoulders, and hips, which then weakens your spinal muscles and adds stress to your joints. Over time, this can wear down cartilage and connective tissue that keep your joints together, causing inflammation in the area. Other causes of osteoarthritis include aging, injury, and genetics.

How can Forme® help with arthritis?

Forme® wearables engage muscle memory in your spinal muscles for better alignment and reduced joint stress. The patented technology trains and restores your shoulders, spine, hips and feet to be in their natural alignment, which minimizes the stress on your joints and in turn can help reduce the risk of developing arthritis. The best part? Our wearables are designed to be both comfortable and versatile, so you can wear them day in and day out. If you already have arthritis, improving your posture may not be a cure, but it can help reduce your symptoms, progression, and performance.

Forme® benefits for arthritis



+ Instant alignment

+ Lengthen lumbar spine

What people are saying

“I went to a PT for three months to rehab my arthritis pain and stiffness with limited success. Just before surgery, my friend recommended the Forme shorts. After wearing it for a few days, I was amazed how it had lifted my hip and lower back pain, and improved mobility. You won’t know how it affects your body until putting it on.”

Sam H.

"I have disc degenerative disease and spinal arthritis, and have had a multi-tier fusion in my c-spine. All of that is compounded by a desk job and a terrible habit of holding tension in my neck and shoulders. My neck muscles are often so tense that they feel like steel cables and hurt to touch, occasionally causing headaches on top of that. The Power Bra gently corrects my posture so that the muscles are able to relax, relieving the tension and pressure. I did not expect it to be so effective, but it has been life changing. I’ll be buying more so I can wear one whenever I’m home."

S L.

“Since September 2021, I have been wearing Forme everyday and during workouts with my PT. As my posture has improved, I can now do a lot more stretching the counter the stiffness in one of my arthritic hips. I wear the Forme Core V-Neck, Power Bra, and Sculpt+ Legging. It has been a life saver!”

Irene C.

"I've been recovering from lower back surgery and struggling with weak core muscles, the ability to take a deep breath, and less than optimal posture. The minute I put the bra on, I noticed my posture improve and my breathing expand. It's so comfortable and works well for everyday wear, desk work, working out and sleeping! I don't want to take it off. Time to order another!"

Rylin M.

"As an ophthalmologist for 20 years, I have spend countless hours of physical therapy on my sore neck and slouched upper back. Forme was a miracle to say the least. It is comfortable, and keeps my upper back and neck better aligned during surgery. It has extended my career and reduced physical therapy costs."
