What is Kyphosis?

Kyphosis refers to an abnormally excessive round back. The spine is designed to have natural curvatures in the neck, mid and low back which create a spring-like mechanism so that the spine can act as a shock absorber to help support the weight of the head and torso. However, kyphosis occurs when this natural mid back curvature becomes larger than normal.

There are a number of causes for an increased kyphosis including aging, arthritis, fractures caused by osteoporosis (weakening of the bones), muscle weakness, Scheuermann’s Disease, an old injury and scoliosis. While a mild increase in kyphosis may be asymptomatic (no symptoms), severe curvature can lead to pain throughout the spine, breathing difficulties and fatigue.

Residents in Baulkham Hills and the Hills Area seeking relief from kyphosis can benefit from chiropractic care. A chiropractor can perform spinal adjustments to release stiff joints, alleviate pain, and improve posture. Through targeted chiropractic interventions and massage therapy, a chiropractor can work towards resolving kyphosis over time, promoting spinal health and overall well-being.
