I'm a 27 yo who was just diagnosed with kyphosis. I am told that the pain i just started suffering is going to be permanent, and that all i can do from now and on is take pain medications.
They say the brace does not work after reaching skeletal maturity (age 15-16).
Is there really no way to fix the actual curvature after that age? what if i wear the brace and then somehow strengthen the muscles around the spine at the same time for, say, a year. Will that work to hold the spine in a new position?
I just really hate to look like this plus live with the pain forever, you know :-\
