A 21-year-old male asked:
Is there any possible way to correct/straighten the postural kyphosis by exercises after the age of 20 ?

Depends on cause: If it is pure postural kyphosis with no wedging of any of the spinal (vertebrae) segments, then core strengthening an postural retraining should correct the problem.
