In an attempt to woo you, your new boyfriend has just bought you a beautiful delicate necklace with a pendant that you know cost him more than what you would ever spend on a piece of jewellery. As he gently and with an accomplished smile reaches to place it around your neck, you grab it aggressively from him to put it on yourself and kill the moment. It’s in that moment that you wish you’d taken your chiropractors advice to sort out that hump.
In the blog, we look at the answers to the most obvious questions concerning this hump. Can the hump be prevented and if one has a hump, how can it be corrected? Please note that the correct diagnosis by a professional is key. The information given in this blog is just to give you an understanding and should not be used as a substitute for a diagnosis by a professional.
Firstly, what exactly is a Fatty Neck Hump?
It results from chronic forward-leaning and the changes that happen to your spinal column. It’s all about the body and its habits. With forward-leaning becoming the norm in our digital world, you have a better chance of developing a hump than your grandparents did. Over time, this poor posture can cause an abnormal curve of the thoracic and cervical vertebrae and a mass of tissue at the lower part of the neck. This mass of tissue forms a hump, which is called a Dowager’s Hump.
What is the CAUSE of a Dowager’s Hump?
How can you PREVENT a Dowager’s Hump?
Can you REVERSE a Dowager’s Hump?
A Dowager’s Hump reversal is all dependent on the cause of the hump and your practitioner’s skill to correct it.
So when we say, Happy Hump Day, we mean there is good news for all those that have a hump or could potentially develop one. A Dowager’s Hump can potentially be prevented and reversed. Speak to your local Chiropractor and biokineticist to get advice.
