Thoracic Hyperkyphosis Treatment in Seattle, WA

Chiropractic Care for Thoracic Hyperkyphosis

Thoracic hyperkyphosis, commonly referred to as a "hunchback", is a condition characterized by an excessive curvature of the upper back that creates a hunched posture. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and, in severe cases, breathing difficulties. At Fremont Spine + Wellness, we focus on treatments that can help correct the curvature, alleviate symptoms, and improve overall spinal health.
