i have cervical kyphosis: apparently from a car injury: it is not severe (I can move relatively normally), but should i be seeing a doctor about it? will it get worse? I have not been able to get any advice from a GP.
thanks, susan.


: The proper name for this is cervical kyphosis. Dowager's Hump is a silly and outdated name and should not be used by a clinician as it is somewhat derogatory. Do you have osteoporosis?, osteoporosis often causes it.
