    Exercise and stretching. I have two family members who do not respond well to anesthetics, so I don't want to go under. It's a struggle but I'm lucky I was already very into yoga, pilates and fitness before the onset of my kyphosis. I've been able to manage well enough, but sometimes it is rough. Mostly when life gets in the way of me taking care of my mind and body, and I go without proper self care for weeks at a time. Stay on your routines!! Learn from my mistakes 😅

    That’s great to hear. I just got done learning some PT exercises and stretches from Airosti. I have been doing ok with them but need to keep them up daily. It’s a struggle but when I do them regularly the pain is so much less.

    I might make an appointment with a chiropractor in order to get some more input. I don’t think it would hurt, for sure.

    Since I have finished growing I really haven’t seen a specialist about it. Mine isn’t bad enough to fall under surgery and it is so high up on my back my doctor didn’t want to have a brace. I do a good bit of stretching anytime I feel the pain, but really I just deal with it.

    None of the above. No one has suggested anything. I take it they don’t care.

    @pixie79 I thought so too. I even got suggested opioids as a potential treatment, which we all know damn well isn't gonna help fix it. But bug the hell out of your GP and try to get help! Because they won't care if they think you can tolerate it, in my experience. Some doctors are good and try to catch conditions before they get worse, and others will wait around until it does. Don't let that happen! Take care 💕

    I have started working out, dancing. Lost about 40 pounds to help ease some of the pain.
