Hyperkyphosis is a spinal condition in which the spine curves outward excessively, causing the upper back to look more rounded than normal. This curvature causes an individual to appear to be slouching or to have a hunchback. The spine does have natural curves, and they help support our posture so that we are able to stand up straight, and when there is excessive curvature to the spine, it will affect posture and make standing erect fairly difficult.

For the most part, hyperkyphosis doesn’t cause any severe health problems, and it may not be severe enough to require treatment. However it can certainly cause an individual to feel self-conscious and to lose self-confidence in social settings. In more severe cases, hyperkyphosis can cause breathing issues and can cause severe pain to an individual. The most common type of hyperkyphosis is postural in nature, and it generally occurs during the teenage years.

This is due to poor posture and slouching, which causes muscles and ligaments to be stretched out, and these muscles and ligaments are responsible for holding spinal vertebrae in place. When they are pulled out of position, it will generally cause a rounded shape to develop in the spine. While females are more frequently affected than males, both genders can develop postural hyperkyphosis, and when it affects your personal self-esteem, it’s best to seek chiropractic treatment.

This means you should seek out Rapid City posture & hyperkyphosis treatment, wherein a skilled chiropractor can bring about a reduction in spinal curvature, and help to restore your self-confidence. If you or someone you know is bothered by hyperkyphosis, contact us at Thrive Chiropractic in Rapid City, and we will be happy to diagnose your situation, and work with you to develop a program of treatment.

Treatment for posture & hyperkyphosis

All natural treatment at Thrive Family Chiropractic

Teenagers who are afflicted with mild to moderate hyperkyphosis should seek treatment at the Thrive Chiropractic Center in Rapid City. Our chiropractic specialists will be able to determine the root cause of your hyperkyphosis, as well as the severity of the condition. Once that has been accomplished, a program of treatment will be developed which can help restore your spine’s normal curvature, so that you can regain your self-confidence.

In some cases, it may be necessary to wear a back brace to expedite recovery of your normal curvature. Gentle spinal adjustments will probably also be a key component of your treatment program, because these can help restore spinal vertebrae to their proper positioning. Back bracing will reinforce the chiropractic treatments and help to accelerate restoration of normal spinal curvature. If it becomes necessary for you to wear a back brace during recovery, you won’t have to sacrifice all your normal activities, because modern back braces are much more accommodating than they used to be.

For most individuals, the spine will stop growing somewhere between the ages of 14 and 15, so after that time frame, it will no longer be necessary to wear any bracing. The main part of your spinal restoration will come from chiropractic sessions administered by one of our experts, and that will allow you to regain your normal erect posture, as well as all your former self-confidence.
