is a condition located in the thoractic vertebrae area of the spine. Naturally, the spine has a slight S-form, but with a kyphosis the upper part is much more curved than it should be. This makes the shoulders fall forward and compress the front part of the torso.
That also makes the chest look deflated.
That's what I think gives Sotiropoulos that hunchbacked old man look and probably quite some back pain when he gets older.
