Kyphosis

Kyphosis is an unnatural curving of the upper spine which causes bowing and rounding of the spine. Kyphosis can occur at any age, common causes are by arthritis of the spine, developmental issues and trauma to the spine. Bad posture may also cause ligaments to loosen, which eventually can develop a curvature of the spine over time.

Kyphosis can affect the lungs, other tissues and organs within the body, as well as cause significant back pain and discomfort. Through a physical examination specialists can confirm the condition. Treatment depends on the cause of the condition, surgery might be necessary if lower back pain treatment and other methods aren't effective.

Consult with a specialist for issues relating to Kyphosis and back pain in NYC. NY Spine and Rehab Medicine offers a number of specialists for pain management.
