I have mild, but very observable, kyphosis in my thoracic spine. I saw in a store today a soft leather-like brace...kind of a racer back looking contraption that is not a fixed type brace at all. As my physical therapist has stated multiple times the importance of “not giving in to the bend”, I searched this forum for prior discussion on posture and someone had posted a picture of one and a comment was made that braces are not good based on immobility issues causing fusion. Any opinions about wearing one a few hours a day to encourage the person toward correcting their posture? I try to think about it and correct the slump, but soon get busy and forget. I think I’d rather fuse upright than keep bending further over. Thoughts?
