Yoga and stretching: Have doctor or chitopactercheck it to make sure there is nothing else going on. They can also give you specific exercises to help. Pt might also help.

None: Exercises cannot correct a true spine deformity. If its "postural" only, then stretching and strengthening can help.

Musculo-skletal: pain. Intercostal pain medication injection to the area may help. May need a chest x-ray to rule out pleuresy.
