Our user asked: "I recently found out I have a very flat thoracic spine. What strengthen exercise can I do to reverse my flat upper back and restore a more curved back? thank you"
 
Ask a PT Response: "Individuals who have a more curved thoracic spine (increased kyphosis) tend to have more issues than someone who has  decrease thoracic kyphosis. Anterior related strengthening exercises for the chest along with stretching of the traps, rhomboids & scapulae muscles may help facilitate an improvement with posture. Are you experiencing issues at your upper back which has led to your concern over the curvature of your thoracic spine?"
