What is Kyphosis?
The excessive curvature of the spine or forward curvature of the backbone is defined as kyphosis. Congenital kyphosis is a disorder that is present since birth. It is common in patients who are in between 20 to 40 and affects cervical or lumbar spine. The degree of the curvature is more likely to increase if the cause is any underlying disease.
Kyphosis results from weakened spine bones and leads to pain and stiffness in the back. It can also develop from metabolic problems, neuromuscular conditions, spina bifida, osteoporotic fractures, traumatic injuries, and slippage of the vertebral disc.
Diagnosis Of Kyphosis
- Assessment of medical history
- Evaluation of present symptoms
- X-rays of the spine
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Computerized Tomography (CT)
- Pulmonary function tests (in rare cases)
Treatment For Kyphosis
Based on the diagnosis, appropriate treatment options will be suggested by Dr Surya Prakash. The treatment options for kyphosis include the following:
Non-Surgical Treatments for Kyphosis
Medications, including calcium supplements and other antibiotics, will be suggested for the patients suffering from kyphosis. Patients typically see out within six months, and if you have not experienced any symptoms, talk to a doctor immediately.
Surgical Treatments For Kyphosis
Surgery is mostly recommended for the patients suffering from severe posture problems, or congenital kyphosis. It is suggested when your condition doesn’t respond to nonsurgical methods. The surgical techniques for kyphosis include.
- Kyphoplasty: Kyphoplasty is a procedure to correct kyphosis. During the procedure, a balloon is inserted and inflated to create a space for compressed spinal nerves. Then the space created will be filled with special bone elements or acrylic mixture.
- Spinal Fusion: In spinal fusion surgery, two or more vertebrae are fused using bones, rods, and screws. The bone used during spinal fusion will be extracted from your pelvic bones. Spinal fusion can reduce the weak posture of the spine as well as prevents the spine curve from worsening.
