Kyphosis is a larger-than-normal forward bend of the spine, and is most commonly found in the upper back. There are three types of kyphosis:
Progressive kyphosis can occur when you experience a spine injury, and can result in pain such as*:
A kyphosis diagnosis can be determined with an X-ray to determine the type of fracture, an MRI to devalue press on the nerves, a CT scan when an x-ray is not sufficient enough or a Biopsy to rule out tumors, infection or other underlying causes of a compression fracture.*
If you and your spine doctor are leaning toward a conservative approach, you can utilize pain management (recommended medication or brace) or physical therapy. The goal of this treatment is to correct the curve in your spine with spine stabilization, pain alleviation and an improved neurologic function.*
When a non-invasive treatment is not viable for your form of kyphosis, surgery may be necessary for pain relief and to improve deformity or decompress the nerve roots.*
