Is a condition of over-curvature of the thoracic vertebra. It can be either the result of arthritis, osteoporosis, compression fracture and trauma. High degrees of kyphosis can cause severe pain and discomfort.
In mild cases they are designed to provide a reminder to stand with a proper posture, in more severe cases to provide extension to the thoracic spine reducing the kyphosis limiting pain.
