Heneghan et al. in the year 2018 have shown that subjects who sit more than 7 hours a day and who are physically active for less than 150 minutes a week exhibit reduced thoracic mobility.
A review by Joshi et al. (2019) has found that increased thoracic kyphosis was positively correlated with the presence of forward head posture. Although thoracic mobility was reduced in the neck pain population, posture was not uniformly associated with neck pain and disability.
So while posture might not have a correlation with pain, literature shows that:– It may be associated with psychological issues such as depression and chronic fatigue (Wilkes et al. 2017) and mental health is generally a negative prognostic factor for recovery in many musculoskeletal disorders.– Furthermore, an increased kyphosis limits overhead mobility (Barrett et al. 2016) and may therefore limit your patient’s ability to carry out certain sports efficiently
In the following we will show you our 5 favorite exercises to mobilize the thoracic spine:
Preacher position (possibly with a stick)
Bending backward over foam roller (with or without weight)
