What Do You Wear For A Kyphotic Posture?

What Do You Wear For A Kyphotic Posture?

I know that most of you in this group are overwhelmed with the diagnosis of osteoporosis, Dexa Scores, and medicine choices. However, I have a different concern. What do others wear for a kyphotic back, forward shoulders, and a forward-thrusting head who still want to be stylish? I am very high-waisted with my front being shorter than my length in the back. I don't want to live in sweats
I also have balance problems so recommendations about shoes that are not athletic or orthopedic looking… read more

You have to call them, and they have a large variety, not the ones you see in regular shoe stores. They cater to people with different needs. I buy my walking shoes, and I use them for walking, and… read more

Pain Under Left Breast

Pain Under Left Breast

Has anyone got pain radiating from the back ( maybe spine?), to under the left breast? It is not a heart issue. Not there all the time but when it comes on it doesn't last for long but feels like when you have a stitch or a mini cramp.

Hi Beau, the pain should go away. I get pains in the night & they usually go away.

I Have Been Getting Intermittent Pain In Right Side Of Middle Back

I Have Been Getting Intermittent Pain In Right Side Of Middle Back

It mostly comes on towards the end of the day. Sometimes it's just a dull ache other times it's quite incapacitating. I have been on Actonel for nearly 8 months. Has anyone experienced anything similar? My endocrinologist doesn't think it's from the Actonel. I have had a cat scan and nothing has shown up;it's not imagined!

A MyOsteoTeam Member said:

Thank you. That is reasuring.
I do have irritable bowel syndrome maybe it is a contributing factor. I hadn't thought of that.
