EDIT.....

i do have scoliosis, not severe; as for the hump, it is called postural kyphosis aka(roundback), bellow will be links, any advice on how to help the kyphosis would be well appreciated. the reason this bothers me is because im 16 still in high school, it sucks so bad seeing fine women going by me everyday, but dont even look at me in any way, it effects me in a lot of ways the cause of it complicates everything more, im a chunky guy as well, socially i am dead, and want something done, please help
