What is Kyphosis?

Description of the disease

Kyphosis is a spinal deformity in which the curvature becomes convex backward. This condition is also known as hyperkyphosis. Kyphosis can manifest to varying degrees, from slight curvature to significant deformity.


  • Congenital kyphosis
  • Acquired kyphosis
  • Idiopathic kyphosis


Symptoms of kyphosis may include back pain, fatigue, restricted spinal mobility, accentuation of the thoracic region of the back, and hunchback.


The causes of kyphosis can be congenital, developmental, or acquired. Possible causes include congenital defects, osteoporosis, injuries, and other diseases.


Diagnosis of kyphosis involves X-rays, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and physical examination.


Treatment of kyphosis may include physical therapy, wearing a brace, medication therapy, and surgical intervention in severe cases.


Prevention of kyphosis includes maintaining proper posture, regular exercises to strengthen back muscles, avoiding injuries, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


Kyphosis is treated by an orthopedic surgeon.
