Kyphosis With Physical Therapy

Kyphosis is a fairly commonly observed spinal deformity across the world. Typically, it is characterized by the rounding of the upper back that also causes the head to slant forward. Although it is more prevalent in elder people, the condition can also affect people across all age groups including children and young people. Depending upon the severity of the condition, treatment can vary from simple posture correction exercises to even surgery. In this feature, we will discuss in detail about the condition and its treatment.

Kyphosis is primarily caused by degeneration or issues in the upper part of the vertebra. For understanding Kyphosis better we need to compare the structure of the vertebra of a patient against that of a healthy patient. In a healthy vertebra, the alignment of the bones and ligaments in the upper vertebral region has a structure that allows for the body to bend between 20 to 45 degrees against the straight back when in a normal position. However, this curvature of a patient with kyphosis exceeds 50 degrees and the back is unable to stay normally straight, which also ends up making the head tilt abnormally forward as the neck’s structure can’t maintain a straight position because of this excessive tilting.

The diagnosis of kyphosis can involve imaging and an assessment by the doctor. Usually, an X-ray is taken on the upper back to determine the severity and type of kyphosis. For the more severe conditions, the doctors may also recommend advanced scans like CT Scans and MRI to more accurately assess damages in the soft-tissues and understand whether it has affected sensitive organs like the heart and lungs. Depending on the test results, the doctor will determine whether the kyphosis condition is the result of postural errors or structural degradation.

Depending upon the type of kyphosis and the severity of the condition affecting the patient different kinds of physical therapy can be recommended to correct or strengthen the muscles around the upper vertebra.

Physical therapy can be very helpful for the treatment of kyphosis, as well as in the recovery of patients after spinal fusion surgery. With proper physical therapy the spinal muscles can be strengthened and better supported so that the load on the vertebrae can be reduced. In consultation with your doctors, your physical therapy may also recommend some safe exercise customized for you to ensure that your recovery and maintenance is on the right path.  Book your appointment today!

Client Reviews

I had a great experience with them. I have tried other therapy places but never got the one on one care. My therapist gave me his full on attention and really helped me recover. I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

    Sofia Bilbao

    My experience was top notch. If I can give more then five stars I would. Customer service was fabulous <and all my complaints were addressed, and best of all resolved. Dr. Normatov takes his time to listen > and explain everything in detail. I would recommend this physical therapist to anyone and everyone.

      I have had an excellent experience with Posh Physical Therapy. In just a few visits I have achieved excellent results. Solomon is patient and professional. The personal 1 on 1 sessions provide the individualized attention I was hoping for. I'd give my experience more than 5 stars if I could.

        Steve Hall

        Very impressed with posh pt. It was very easy to schedule an appointment. My physical therapist was great! He took the time to listen about my ankle injury and formulate a great treatment plan. I was able to go back to normal activity quicker than expected. Highly recommend!
