Which is better the pain pump or the spine stimulator?

Depends: Depends on what you are using each of these things for. Pain pumps are specifically for patients on high dose opiates and typically are used for terminal cancer patients.

Is it possible to correct/reverse my postural kyphosis into a normal corrected spine? Age : 20. I train, got muscles everywhere, still no results!

Is it possible to correct/reverse my postural kyphosis into a normal corrected spine? Age : 20. I train, got muscles everywhere, still no results!

Postural Kyphosis: As a podiatrist, i see patients with kyphosis present for foot orthotics to correct part of this. However, the specialities that deal with this the most are physiatrists, chiropractors, and osteopaths. There may be a rigid part that is permanent, but there may be a good deal of functional muscle and ligament tightening that you can work on, and see results. Too much sitting in front of computer? ...Read more

I'm 20, and i wanna use a brace to straighten up my postural kyphosis, some say it's too late. So, is it gonna work or just deform more my spine ?

Not really: When a person is still in their growing phase, a brace can be used to potentially correct an increased kyphosis. When growth is complete, this opportunity for correction is lost. A brace may hold the spine in a straightened position in an adult, but as soon as the brace is removed, the kyphosis is still there. ...Read more

On my 20s, i know that is gonna prevent the deformity if I use the brace for my postural kyphosis, but is it gonna cause any bad issues for my spine?

On my 20s, i know that is gonna prevent the deformity if I use the brace for my postural kyphosis, but is it gonna cause any bad issues for my spine?

Will likely not be: Helpful at all. You are done growing at age 20, so there is no reason to have a brace for this diagnosis. You have to see a physical therapist ; learn some very effective trunk stabilization programs, core strengthening programs, postural educations. The brace will not change your deformity, ; will only likely cause pressure points ; inconvenience. See a spine surgeon if you are having symptoms. ...Read more
