I recently had spinal x-rays that show that along with a moderate scoliosis, I have an accompanying hypokyphosis in the upper-thoracic spine. From what I've read most people tend toward hyperkyphosis and my condition is an unusual one. Is it necessary to modify the techniques from 8-steps to account for this? My cervical spine is already very flat, for example, with almost no curve at all shown in the x-ray, and my thoracic spine dips between the shoulder blades.
I'm concerned about applying the stretchlying and stacksitting methods correctly for my body since I would spend many hours in these positions daily.

I have the same condition and am also wondering what exercises/movements would be most effective for this problem. Since I also have a forward head posture, I've been trying to lengthen my neck, but this effort seems to be making my hypokyphosis worse.
