Kyphosis is a spinal condition where the thoracic curve of spine is bigger than usual hence it gives it a hunched appearance. Its other symptoms include stiff neck and thighs, rounded shoulders, numbness of legs and difficulty in breathing. If you are experiencing any such symptoms, visit us today for a diagnosis.

Exercises for Relief from Kyphosis

A physiotherapist would recommend following exercises and stretches to strengthen the back and abdominal muscles in kyphosis:

Knee rolls

Pelvic tilting

  • Lying on the floor, bend the knees with feet flat on the floor.
  • Arching the back, keep the buttocks and upper back flat on the ground.
  • Holding the arch for a few seconds return to a fully flat position.
  • Repeat five times.

Knees to chest

  • Lie down in the same position as the previous two exercises, bringing one knee up towards the chest.
  • Clasping the hands around the knee, slowly pull the knee closer to the chest.
  • Hold for some time, then release.
  • Repeat five times on each side.

In case you are unable to perform the exercises or you have continuous pain, visit KKT for a consultation, get yourself diagnosed and treated here with the help of quantum acoustic waves, non-invasively.
