How to correct exaggerated spine curvature
June 27, 2011 1:44 PM Subscribe
For those of you who have had success with treating kyphosis and the like: I have postural kyphosis. I do a lot of muscle exercises and stretching to correct my posture and have actually gained 1.5 inches in height but my spine still has a very exaggerated curve. I think I have the muscular side covered but are there any skeletal manipulations I could be doing ie. chiro adjustments that will help lessen the exaggerated curvature?

I know nothing of osteopaths and I don't want to go with a brace if I don't have to because then my posture muscles will atrophe. Should I just roll my upper back on one of those foam cylinders once in a while?
