Patient Comments: Kyphosis - Therapy and Prognosis

Describe the physical therapy exercises that have helped for your kyphosis. What is your prognosis?

Comment from: mystylgrl, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: April 11

I use a cervical traction unit over the door. I use a bone pillow to sleep at night. I do hot yoga and swim for exercise. I stretch my neck constantly, I think to stay straight and stand tall. I get massages, use heat packs, and see a chiropractor weekly. I like to use a hard collar to stretch my neck. I am in constant pain because of the kyphosis, but find relief with therapies. It takes constant work.
