The only time that a CBP chiropractor cannot help someone with a hunchback is when it’s too far gone. Often times you will see somebody who has severe degeneration in their spine from lack of care over time. You may notice it more in seniors.
The reason isn’t because of their age that a hunchback might develop, it is because they might have had a problem in their spine at a young age and it wasn’t addressed. As gravity pulls you and time passes it becomes more of a hunch.
Often times you can reverse any spinal structure as long as the spine hasn’t fused. Your spine can naturally fuse and will naturally fuse to help support your body if you’re not doing anything to help maintain it. That’s what arthritis is.
There are times when people have something called a hyperkyphosis, which is an extreme rounding of the spine. This is like when you think of Quasimodo. That is usually a serious form of scoliosis in the thoracic spine.
There are some conditions when a person is predisposed to having loss of disc height and loss of bone height in the front and your body will start to collapse forward on itself. In those instances, surgical intervention is needed quickly because there is nothing you can do otherwise.
It really does depend on what the problem is and a CBP doctor would not be able to help unless you have a check-up. So the first thing to do is to get your spine checked by a CBP practitioner to determine what is going on. Make an appointment today.
