Scheuermann’s Disease

Scheuermann’s disease is a developmental disorder of the spine believed to be the result of vertebral growth plate trauma during adolescence. The result is normal bony growth and development of the posterior (back) vertebral structures with a cessation of growth in the anterior (front) vertebral structures. This leads to the development of a wedge shaped vertebral body. The diagnosis of Scheuermann’s Disease is made when three or more consecutive vertebral segments are involved. Scheuermann’s Disease typically occurs in the thoracic (mid) spine region but may also occur in the lumbar (low back) region. Scheuermann’s Disease typically presents in adolescence as pain around the mid back region with an increased curvature of the spine and limited range of spinal motion.
