    Is it from over development or something more serious?

    You have had it for ages?

    You should talk to a doctor and an occupational therapist. What the hell do we know? Most of us are not doctors and we don't have your body to examine.

    try a chiropractor....otherwise, shoulder and upper back exercises might help

    There are a few things that can cause what we call a hunchback
    genetics...usually a curvature of the spine
    not really much can be done with that
    you can minimize the effects through a chiropractor and training tho
    medicines...notably cortisone and steroids
    cause the accumulation of fat in the upper back
    sorry to say that stopping the medicine doesn't always work in this case
    and lastly...occupational hazard
    us guys who sit at work at a desk with our shoulders hunched over
    this last one is the easiest to work with you need a two phased approach
    ** first stretch out the chest...this area becomes tight in a constant sitting position in front of a desk
    ** second work on the upper back - the traps and upper lats and the rear delts

    If all else fails, you could get a job in a church.

    yes, stretch the chest, do up right rows. and get yourself into a pilates mat class. get some flexibility in your spine.
