Most of us are very familiar with someone who has a hunched over posture, and what appears to be a hump on their upper back. This posture inevitably leads to chronic neck pain, shoulder problems, and even lower back pain and can be very difficult to reverse once it is developed. In the past we would normally only see this in the elderly but what we are starting to see these days is the onset of this problem in people much younger. It is even starting to get a different name, such as "text neck" or "Iphone hump". The amount of people stuck in the looking down at their phone position is speeding up the rate of postural decline, and you can just imagine what things will be like in another 20 years if we do not begin to change our habits now. However, it is not just modern technology at fault as there are several other factors that contribute to creating this problem. This is part one of a two part series about kyphosis and the dowagers hump, and in this article we look specifically at all the potential triggers and causes. Whereas part two shows you how to use exercises to correct this posture. Enjoy.
