See below: When we bend over the natural curves in our spine reverse and we all have a "hump" in the middle of our back. If your back looks normal when you are standing up i doubt there is anything wrong. If you are worried, see your doctor to get checked out. ...Read more

Several things: Beyond working with a surgeon, consider yoga as it will help with spinal alignment and posture issues. Otherwise, working with a personal training may be helpful to set up a routine strengthen your core(your back and abdominal muscles).

What are considered the most effective back strengthing exercises?

See below: There are many great exercises to strengthen the core. I would recommend a visit with a physical therapist or personal trainer to learn proper technique. One of the best exercises are called planks. To do this lay on your stomach and lift your belly and legs off the ground with your forarms and toes on the ground. Try holding this postion for 15-30 seconds at a time. ...Read more

YOGA: There is absolutely no way to answer your question in specifics without knowledge of the muscles and bone troubles your friend has specifically. I think and believe that many people with chronic pain need to put away the failure of western medicine in this situation and pursue yoga as a means to living better with their chronic pain. ...Read more
