I have kyphosis (hunchback posture).
I have read a lot on it, and usually the fix includes things like foam rolling or using a peanut in order to mobilize the spine.
My problem is that I can’t get myself to do these - they seem way too “boring.” Would you think that if I put a small ball (say, like a small cantaloupe) on my upper back while sleeping, I could get a similar effect (and for a much larger duration)?
Similar to this:
… only I will be using a ball that will distribute the pressure over more vertebrae (we don’t want to create “hyperrmobility” in a single vertebra).
I mean, kyphosis is mainly caused by being hunched over for years, so doing the “opposite” for a good deal of time (as in, several hours while sleeping), should help.
Btw, I’m familiar with all the other things I need to be doing as well: Stretching pecs and hip flexors, working the back, being mindful of my posture etc. My question is what do you think of the specific idea above?
