Hunchback... A forward rounding of the back. Hunchback (kyphosis) usually refers to an abnormally curved spine. It's most common in older women and often related to osteoporosis. Poor posture in childhood, such as slouching, leaning back in chairs and carrying heavy schoolbags, can cause the ligaments and muscles that support the vertebrae to stretch. This can pull the thoracic vertebrae out of their normal position, resulting in kyphosis.. Rotational exercise.
