Natural Corrections for Pectus Carinatum & Pectus Excavatum (Pigeon Chest and Sunken Chest): Is Spontaneous Healing Possible?

Pectus deformities, particularly pectus carinatum (pigeon chest) and pectus excavatum (sunken chest), are structural anomalies of the chest wall that typically arise from congenital differences. Can such deformities naturally correct themselves over time? In this article, we will explore whether these deformities can heal on their own and the factors that may influence this process.





Is Spontaneous Healing Possible?

The likelihood of spontaneous healing for pigeon chest and sunken chest deformities is generally low. Most of these deformities become apparent during an individual’s growth and development and tend to progress if not treated. However, in some cases, mild deformities and certain age groups might experience improvements over time.

  1. Mild Deformities:

  • Mild pectus deformities, particularly if identified during childhood, may see some improvement during the growth and development phases. These improvements can be associated with the expansion of the chest cavity and the strengthening of the chest muscles.

  1. Growth Phases:

  • As children undergo growth spurts, changes in the shape of the chest cavity may occur. These changes can reduce the appearance of deformities, but they are usually not considered permanent corrections.

  1. Physical Activity and Exercise:

  • Regular exercise and specific physical activities can strengthen the chest muscles, helping to improve the structure of the chest wall. Such activities can alleviate the effects of the deformity but do not typically correct the deformity completely.


Treatment of Deformities

Various methods are available for treating pigeon chest and sunken chest deformities. These treatments include the use of orthotics, surgical interventions, and vacuum therapy, each tailored to the patient’s age, the severity of the deformity, and overall health condition.

  • Use of Orthotics:

  • Orthotics, particularly recommended for pectus carinatum, apply pressure to correct the deformity. This treatment is especially effective during adolescence.

  • Surgical Intervention:

  • Surgical interventions may be preferred for severe pectus deformities. These operations provide a more permanent correction of the deformity.

  • Vacuum Therapy:

  • Vacuum therapy, used for pectus excavatum, promotes outward pulling of the chest cavity, reducing the appearance of the deformity.


In conclusion, the majority of pectus deformities, such as pigeon chest and sunken chest, do not self-correct without medical intervention. Except for mild cases and specific circumstances, effective treatment of these deformities typically requires professional medical methods. In all cases, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment enhance control over the deformity and can significantly improve an individual's quality of life.
