Need To Kyphosis
If I wear a corset for kyphosis correction, can I continue to go to the gym? What physical restrictions will I have? Do I need to wear it 24/7?

Understand that a brace for kyphosis in an adult patient has no long term structural effect, it is simply to treat your symptoms, as such it does not need to be worn 24/7, nor should it be.

Physical therapy may be able to slow increase of kyphosis, but should be done only at recommendation of spine doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Doubt cervical disks: If the cervical disks are not causing a radiating pain, numbness, tingling or weakness, they may not be the cause of upper back pain. Congenital kyphosis is more likely.
