CLAIMS

1. A back support arrangement adapted to align muscles and joints in a back of a user, said back support arrangement including;

a main body having a resilient longitudinal support;

said resilient longitudinal support including an outward curve, bend, pivot, or fulcrum;

an upper back support section wherein the upper back support section is mounted to a top section of the resilient longitudinal support above said outward curve, bend, pivot, or fulcrum;

a lower back support section wherein the lower back support section is mounted to a bottom section of the resilient longitudinal support below said outward curve, bend, pivot, apex or fulcrum;

a first braced member at one end mounted to the resilient longitudinal support and at a second end of the first brace member mounted to the upper back support section;

a second brace member mounted at one end to the resilient longitudinal support and at a second end of the second brace member mounted to the lower back support section;

such that when in use compression upon the top section or bottom section by the user during body re-posturing of the user translates said compression to a movement of the first brace member upon the upper back support section in a substantially forward upwards movement and movement of the second brace member upon the lower back support section in a substantially forward downwards movement wherein the forward upwards movement of the upper back support section upon an upper spine section of the spine of the user and the forward downwards movement of the lower back support section upon a lower spine section of the spine of the user forces curvature of the spine of the user into natural curvature of the spine.

2. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the upper back support section and the lower back support section are longitudinal.

3. The back support arrangement of claim 2 wherein the upper back support section and the lower back support section are imparted with a degree of resiliency and include profiling so as to comfortably engage the upper spine of the spine of the user with respect to the upper back support section and the lower spine section of the spine of the user with respect to the lower back support section.

4. The back support arrangement of claim 3 wherein the upper back section is mounted at a location at an end of the top section of the resilient longitudinal support so that in a relaxed or uncompressed configuration of the resilient longitudinal support with the upper back support section, the resilient longitudinal support and the upper back support section provide for an upper apex.

5. The back support arrangement of claim 3 or 4 wherein the lower back section is mounted at a location at a bottom end of the bottom section of the resilient longitudinal support so that in a relaxed or uncompressed configuration of the resilient longitudinal support with the lower back support section, the resilient longitudinal support and the lower back support section provide for a lower apex.

6. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the first brace member extending at one end from the resilient longitudinal support engages with a bottom end of the upper back support section.

7. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the second brace member extending at one end from the resilient longitudinal support engages with a top end of the lower back support section.

8. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the second brace member is mounted to the resilient longitudinal support below a mounting location of the first brace member to the resilient longitudinal support

9. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the main body of the back support arrangement is mounted to the back of the user through a belt arrangement.

10. The back support arrangement of claim 9 wherein the belt arrangement includes a belt mountable to the resilient longitudinal support and strappable around a front chest or upper waist section of the user.

11. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the upper back support section is curved inwards at the bottom end of the upper back support section.

12. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the lower back support section is s curved inwards at the top section of the lower back support section.

13. The back support arrangement of claim 1 wherein the upper back support section and the lower back support section are adjustably mountable up and down the resilient longitudinal support.

14. The back support arrangement of claim 13 wherein the adjustable mountability of the upper back support section and the lower back support section along the resilient longitudinal support includes a slot arrangement.

15. The back support arrangement of claim 14 wherein the slot arrangement is a slot at respective top and bottom ends of the resilient longitudinal support.
