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?

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?

I also don’t like how they increase the effective bar diameter. ...Read more

My buttocks perspires an hour or so after eating or whenever i'm anxious. I wear loose fitting clothes and cotton undergarments. What else can I do?

Difficult to treat: This condition. It is mediated by autonomic nerves.
