It started 10 years ago, I had a major depression, developed a bad posture. I had exercised with weightlifting 5 years before that, but then started to get extreme upper and lower cross syndrome with extreme short muscles in pecs, shoulders, trapezius, scalenes, levator scapulae. When I say extreme, it truly was.
After years of rehab exercises, different treatments, I have got better, but far from good. MRI showed 2 bulging discs in C5-6. Now I have a thoracic hump, and it pulls my head forward.
I´m 33 years of age now, and some chiropractors said that I am very mobile in my spine etc.
Are there any treatments, or surgery that could get rid of that hump. I´ve read about Vertebroplasty and Kyphoplasty, are there methods that could work even that I had developed this during the past 10 years??
There's good and bad news. Frankly I doubt that any treatment will substantially reduce your thoracic hump, or kyphosis as it's called.
But the good news is that it's very treatable. And that you make no mention of arm pain associated with those bulging discs. Remember that the majority of a group of young men of your age with positive MRIs had no symptoms at all; what we call an incidental finding.
A combination of a specific exercise programme to strengthen the rhomboid and and levator scapula muscles, a monthly sports massage and a monthly visit to your chiropractor is what will help most of all. In particular, I prefer the "anterior thoracic" adjustment for your type of kyphotic spine.
There's no sign of Scheuermanns on xray?
You may find the hump unsightly, but try to put it out of your mind. There aren't too many perfect bodies around.
I hope this contributes.
