Siti Annisa Nuhonni said, humpback or kyphosis consists of two types of functional and structural kyphosis. Functional kyphosis can still be cured so there is the possibility of people with functional kyphosis can back posture upright.
“With some types of therapy, functional kyphosis can be cured,” said Honni, vocation, the talk show titled ‘Know Kyphosis, Stay away from the cause: Osteoporosis. Demi Better Tomorrow ‘.
Honni said, the best therapy to help improve posture with kyphosis functional is by doing water sports. Swim, float, and walk in the water are a few variations.
“A lot of swimming styles that can pull the shoulders and spine so that it becomes more robust, such as the breaststroke or butterfly. Fact by walking in chest-high water alone can help” he said.
The principle of water sports to overcome functional kyphosis is water pressure “forced” to put the body upright posture. “No way it goes slouch in the water, because it will be more difficult,” said Honni.
Functional kyphosis, said Honni, caused by not sitting upright habit, too much bent, shoulders less attractive, and some practice in relation to other postures. In fact, two months lying in bed due to illness also cause this type of kyphosis.
To avoid the habits that lead to kyphosis, can actually start as early as possible. “Before the kyphosis, should avoid the habits that caused it,” said Honni.
“When you start bending, pull the shoulder and abdomen, and chest puffed. If necessary, ask the people closest to remind you,” he advised.

However, not all of kyphosis can be cured. Honni said, for structural kyphosis can only be prevented from getting worse, but posture can not be re-built.
