Kyphosis is a condition in which the thoracic vertebrae develop excessive curvature.
Visually, kyphosis is evident in a greater convexity of the thoracic (chest) vertebrae, which is also characterized by a forward tilting of the shoulders and head. In addition, excessive curvatures may also be created in the cervical and lumbar spine as part of compensatory processes created by the body.
Common characteristics of kyphosis
+ Rounded back with greater thoracic curve
+ Shoulders slouch forward and the scapula is in protraction
+ The head tilts forward
+ Thoracic rigidity/stiffness (mainly in extension and rotation of the thoracic vertebrae)
+ The chest muscles (Pectoralis major/minor) are short
+ Weakness in the deep erector spinae muscles and the scapular retractors
+ Greater curves may be created in the cervical and lumbar vertebrae as well, as a result of the body’s compensatory processes
+ Short superficial breathing because of limited chest cavity mobility
+ Low body awareness
+ Short hamstrings
+ Short cervical extensors
In working on this program we delved into the anatomy and kinesiology of the Locomotor / musculoskeletal system and developed a very effective evidence-based life-changing therapeutic program that actually is suitable to anyone who would like to prevent Kyphosis.
The complex structure of the spine makes movement possible in many movement planes. This movement is the total of small partial movements that occur between one vertebra and another according to the chain principle. For this reason, spinal mobility, in general, is affected by the regular movement and functioning of the dozens of small joints between the vertebrae. A local constraint directly affects range of movement in that particular area, and indirectly affects other areas above and below the problem area.
Therefore, specific thoracic spinal mobility is needed on a daily basis. We have designed the best isolated and integrated mobility exercises that are very effective.
This unique and professional app contains very high quality and original exercises, with the aim of expanding and enriching the uses of movement for therapy and for daily activity and improving posture patterns in daily functioning.
