In addition to appearance, there is also posture that affects people’s mental outlook and temperament. Even if you look beautiful, you will lose a lot of points with a hunchback with a chest.

Many people are because of the relationship between work and daily living habits, so that the body is in a bad posture for a long time, and the body muscle imbalance is caused.

Hunchback is arguably the most common posture problem in life. Hunchback is divided into shoulder blade, thoracic vertebrae, lumbar spine problems:

(1) Scapular problems

Forward (including chest) and upward (shrugging) of the shoulder blades are most commonly caused by desk workers.

PS: Because the sternoclavicular joint is unstable, the body gathers the small cardiac muscles to stabilize the joint, which will bring the shoulders forward. As the shoulder moves forward, the upper oblique muscles come out to support the shoulder.

(2) Thoracic and lumbar spine problems

Poor sitting posture leads to increased or decreased curvature of the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae, causing a hunched back.


(1) Lie face down on the ground with your hands back and high-fives.

(2) Without changing the angle of the elbows, raise both hands by pushing the shoulders up and squeezing the shoulder blades together.

(3) Hold for five seconds, which is one session, do two to three sets per day, each set of 12 sessions.
