The answer is yes!  Will it happen overnight?  Probably not.  I have seen many students suffering from a Dowagers hump make great strides with the Gokhale Method.  Lengthening the spine, anteverting the pelvis and positioning your head on top of the spine helps to reverse the extreme curvature of a dowagers hump.
