Hump between the shoulder blades?
Hello. I’ve never posted here before and I don’t have back pain, but I do have what might be considered a problem and would like to know if anyone here could help. Between my shoulder blades and slightly higher than that I have what I consider to be a predominant hump. It’s like one of my lower cervical vertebrae sticks out more than the others. My head also leans a little forward from this point. I’ve had this all my life. I had a physical trainer and a martial arts instructor both tell me that is comes from bad posture, and that it is not normal but that the vertebrae (spelling?) can be aligned with the use of a brace, posture exercises or a chiropractor can put it back in place over several visits. I’ve noticed many people with this hump, but many others without it. The ones I’ve noticed who don’t have the hump seem to stand much straighter and their heads stand straight up from their necks rather than lean forward. Is there any way to actually correct this because I’m afraid it will eventually cause me problems as I age and also I find it unsightly? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks again in advance.
