[QUOTE=Timberwolf_uk]I respect what you are saying but I am 20, I shouldnt have problems like this. The more I think about it, the more I am sure. My back is caused by poor posture. Even my dad said my shoulders are not right which means I probably have rounded shoulders and I am sure I have whats known as "rounded back".
You said it could be years of bad body image. What do you mean by this? I was obese from the age of 12 to 18 and for the last 2 years, I've been losing weight and I am now classed as overweight.
So what can be done about this? For the last week, I have been trying to correct my posture. I am walking at least an hour everyday, and when I sit, I make sure my back is as flat and as straight as it can be. If I continue to correct my posture, will my rounded back go away?
You mentioned weight lifting... I have 2 dumbells (5KG each) in my bedroom which I've recently started using for my arms. Can these help correct my shoulders/back? Is there any excerises I can do to correct this problem?
I know left untreated, bad posture could cause other health problems in the future such as breathing difficulities. I dont want that so what can be done?
Well good for you losing the weight... I would join a gym and go to a personal trainer or maybe your Dr. can send you to a PT program for your back. I would contact your Dr. again and tell him how concerned you are about this problem.
Maybe you can find some workout ideas for back and shoulders on the fitness board on this site. Check it out and good luck to you.
