Do you know any friend or relative who have Kyphosis? Kyphosis is also called hunchback, it is a common condition of a curvature of the upper spine. It can be either the result of degenerative diseases (such as arthritis), developmental problems, osteoporosis with compression fractures of the vertebrae, and/or trauma. In order for it to be treated, you must have Orthotics (also known as body braces), specialized physical therapy, or surgery.

Compared to specialized physical therapy or surgery, I guess one practical way is by using body braces in treating Kyphosis. And there this one store which I knew specializes on making quality orthotics. Aspen Medical Products, Inc., is a leader in the design, development and marketing of upper and lower spinal orthotics. So aside from Kyphosis, Spinal disc herniation (also known as bulging disc), lumbar support, and other forms are treated by their high-quality body braces.
