Scoliosis Can Affect People Of All Ages
Scoliosis is a physical disorder causing an abnormal curve of the spine, or backbone. If your spine is in an “S” or “C” shape or curved from side to side, you might have scoliosis.
Approximately 80% of scoliosis cases have no identifiable cause. These cases are often diagnosed during the first 7 years of a child’s life.
Those with sedentary jobs hunched over a computer and older women suffering from osteoporosis where spinal bones become weakened to where they begin to compress and crack may feel the marked effects of scoliosis.
Bone-thinning, the main issue with osteoporosis is often the product of crushed vertebrae and is more predominately in older adults (mostly women). People taking large doses of corticosteroids over long durations of time are also likely to develop the disease.
Severe cases of scoliosis can be very painful, as well as twisting and contorting the body, where mild forms of the disorder able to be treated effectively, depending on the patient’s age and actual causality of the disorder.
Kyphosis: Curvature Of The Spine
Kyphosis is quite a common condition appearing as an exaggerated forward rounding of the upper back, neck, or thoracic region. Many patients experiencing severe forms of Kyphosis also report symptoms of ‘stiffness’ resulting from their curved spines, while mild sufferers find it difficult to notice any signs of Kyphosis. Parents who suspect their child may have Kyphosis would be wise to see a GP. The GP will observe and diagnose the disorder after noticing an increased curve in the child’s upper back. The GP may suggest the child wear a back brace for scoliosis to help firmly and gently straighten their back.
Disc Degeneration From Kyphosis
Disc degeneration is also a problem resulting from Kyphosis. Cushioning between each spinal vertebra is provided by soft and circular shaped discs, which as people age tend to lose their cushioning out and shrink. Additionally, Schuermann’s disease (or Schuermann’s Kyphosis) is an abnormality that manifests in youths during pre-pubescent growth spurts and is more commonly diagnosed in males than females.
Kyphosis In The Womb
Kyphosis can form in pregnancy after the baby’s spinal column fails in developing while inside the mother’s womb. In children, Marfan syndrome (Prader-Willi disease) can also be associated with Kyphosis. Weakened vertebra is also caused from cancer which makes the spine more susceptible to compression fractures. Chemotherapy as well as other radiation-based treatments may cause physical disfigurement.
