    Alexander Technique. There's nothing that comes close for that kind of thing.

    Are you US-based? If so you can find a teacher here:

      Thankyou all for the input. I guess my next step is going to be finding a good physiotherapist to get checked out. What I need is someone who will be able to teach me proper posture/stretches and make sure Im doing it correctly. Any suggestions on what to watch out for and what to look for in a good physiotherapist?

        Be really firm if what they're teaching you (ie. stretches) to do is NOT WORKING.

        Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

          Scoliosis is a lateral curve, side to side. Kyphosis is when it's arched forward. And it's most common cause is posture, a PT or Chrio is a good start. Matil fix your posture and muscles first! Maybe consider a standing desk? Just a thought.
