Types of Spine Curvature Disorders

As we all know that the spine, or the backbone, is made up of small bones or vertebrae which are stacked along with discs one on top of another. The main indication of a healthy spine is judged from the side that has gentle curves to it and the curves help the spine absorb stress from body movement and gravity. When the natural curvatures of the spine are misaligned or exaggerated in certain areas, which leads to lordosis, kyphosis, as well as scoliosis and they are noted as the abnormalities of the spine.

Symptoms of spine curvature vary depending on the type of the disorder and the severity of the condition. The Symptoms of lordosis may include appearing swayback, with the buttocks being more pronounced, having a large gap between the lower back and the floor when lying on your back on a hard surface that does not change when you bend forward, back pain and discomfort and occurrence of problems moving certain ways. Symptoms of kyphosis are usually visible in nature and include bending of head in the forward as compared to the rest of the body, hump or curve to the upper back and fatigue in back or legs. The symptoms of scoliosis may include having uneven shoulder blades with one being higher than the other an uneven waist or hip and leaning toward one side.

There are various spine injury treatments that can handle the pain caused by Curvature Disorders. The curved spine treatment is done by spine specialist and in general, the treatment is determined based on the severity and type of spinal curvature disorder you have. Mild spinal curvature, as occurs with postural kyphosis, may not be treated at all. More severe spinal curvature may require the use of a back brace or surgery.

The spine specialist doctor suggests Exercise programs, chiropractic treatment, electrical stimulation, and nutritional supplements that have not been proven to prevent the worsening of scoliosis. It is still ideal to keep as much as strength and flexibility to maintain normal function. This may require more effort and attention in someone with scoliosis.

When the spine curves abnormally, it can result in a range of discomfort, from mild to debilitating. The patients should always look for an array of non surgical therapies, minimally invasive procedures and surgical options, including complex reconstructive surgery. There are treatments recommended according to your symptoms and health needs so you can return to enjoying your normal activities.
