It's not unreasonable to suggest that the manipulations your son received exacerbated the already misaligned area. Some adjustments are perfectly safe, but may have contraindications for use... Ultimately, I cannot say for sure since I didn't observe the treatment personally.

I'm sorry to say that I don't have a diagnosis for you, but you might consider searching for a certified ART practitioner (Active Release Technique) in your area. These specialists have an extremity protocol that can be very helpful.
The Webster technique truly is amazing, but it's important to temper your expectations. It's not a "silver bullet" for all breeched scenarios. I am of the opinion that you should give it a try, it's incredibly gentle.

I wouldn't consider the mild kyphosis "normal" but I would say it's fairly common. The spine is designed to adapt to structural stress by bending and twisting in subtle ways. If it stays in a fixated or twisted position, I recommend consulting with a reputable chiropractor in your area.
