What is Cervical Kyphosis?

Kyphosis is a condition wherein the upper back and neck are curved forward abnormally far. It is characteristic of a spinal curvature of over fifty degrees, commonly known as a hunchback or humpback.

The Benefits of Treating Kyphosis with Chiropractic Care

posture-wrong-correctKyphosis is caused by an imbalance in the muscles of your upper back and neck. Some key muscles may be too weak, too tight, or too stretched out.

A chiropractor can address these problems by pinpointing your problem muscles and fostering strength and functionality.

Your treatment may include massage, adjustments, and a regimen of stretches or strengthening exercises.

Compared to other forms of treatment available to kyphosis patients, chiropractic care offers numerous benefits. These benefits include the following:

  • Chiropractic treatments do not generally come with any harsh medications or invasive surgeries. As such, potential side-effects are minimal, and less common.
  • Compared to surgical solutions, chiropractic treatments are highly affordable.
  • Chiropracty can be safely practiced on many people who might be ineligible for surgery and medication, including children and the elderly.
