Hi doctor,

I have recent x-rays that support my chiropractor's diagnosis of cervical kyphosis. I have been a runner for over 10 years. Is it safe for my condition to continue running? I do not want to give it up.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You may continue running, but before that strengthen your neck muscles for three weeks to optional strength so that your running does not damage your neck bones.
  • It should be a focused strengthening of neck muscles.
  • The drawback of your condition is that the shock absorption would be lesser than normal, but if you strengthen your neck muscles under the supervision of a physiotherapist, then you can recover.
