The hump that forms at the junction of the neck and back, also known as the hump, is becoming more and more popular due to modern lifestyle, work in front of a computer, and often exaggerated use of a smartphone. In addition, it does not only occur among the elderly, it occurs in all ages.
Many people see deformity as merely an aesthetic problem, but in fact, a pre-positioned head posture can perpetuate neck and shoulder pain, and even make migraines more difficult for sufferers. Correction is not an easy task, you may need guidance from a professional who will assess your posture issues and then plan targeted and personalized exercises. Prevention is key, and home gymnastics can help. You may want to try them even if the lesion is already there.
Exercises against the bumps
In everyday life, posture correction is the most important task for the prevention of protrusions and other spinal deformities. Protruding shoulders, increased back bulge, and forward posture all lead to muscle imbalances. While some muscles are stretched, others become tighter, the inconsistency is fixed, and complaints become more frequent. Posture correction should be accompanied by stretching and strengthening of tense muscles. The following exercises can help prevent and reverse recent or minor lesions. Although the tasks may seem simple, because they are small and not complicated movements, performing and understanding them correctly takes time and practice.
