Kyphosis (Hunchback) and Other Back Problems Can Be Helped With NeuroCranial Restructuring®

Back problems are the result of the postural pattern of the body leading to excessive stress for the muscles and the nerves, creating pain. Kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis are postural patterns of the spine. There is no medical treatment for postural problems until they are so severe that surgery can be used.

Consider a whiplash injury. It is caused by a whip-like action of the head and neck, moving the center of the head forward (anteriorly) on the neck. This makes the head balance differently. The body's solution to the dilemma of holding the head up in a stable pattern is to change the curve of the neck into a straighter or even a reverse curve pattern. No wonder that local treatment of the neck does not help much!

Similarly, a kyphotic, scoliotic or lordotic spine is created from the stabilization pattern of the head. Local treatment of these spinal patterns is without merit. This is why there is generally no treatment for postural problems beyond telling someone to stand up straight. When the bones of the head are misaligned, the only postural patterns that the nervous system can find to support the head in a stable pattern result in kyphosis, lordosis, scoliosis or the whiplash pattern (a very straight spine).

Only NCR® can routinely expect to make changes in kyphosis, lordosis and scoliosis. This is because the reasons for these postures are not conditions in the spine but instead problems in the position of bones in the skull. It sounds funny to say that scoliosis begins in the face, but it's true!
