Lesson Plan

Thoracic hyper-kyphosis is a postural deviation that is associated with morbidity and mortality. The intent of this paper is to describe the successful case of conservative reduction in thoracic hyper-kyphosis utilizing thoracic extension traction methods as performed in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP®) Technique. Traditional conservative treatment options for thoracic hyper-kyphosis have included exercise, manual therapy, spinal orthosis, ‘practiced normal posture,’ and more recently, taping. All of these procedures, however, have been criticized because despite these methods as showing promise for improving health outcomes in patients with hyper-kyphosis, the trials used to evaluate them have been ” small in scale, and most short in duration. ” Since this deformity is associated with osteoporosis and worsening of kyphosis it is well advised to treat this condition earlier rather than later.
