Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Yes it is possible.
If you do not have enough support the the spine, the ribs attached to it will not be in place with bending.
So, you may experience breathing difficulty as well.
You should consider physical therapy to strengthen the back and rib cage muscles to help with respiration.
Also neck and back brace may be used during activities for proper spine support.
Please also consider seeing a spine surgeon to consider surgical options like fusing the bones for better quality of life.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
