Abnormal curves in your spine, such as scoliosis or kyphosis, are known as spinal deformities. It can affect your spine’s ability to do its job, leading to pain, neurological problems, and mobility challenges. Spinal deformities can occur for a wide range of reasons, including birth defects, aging, and degeneration, to trauma. All spinal deformities involve problems of the curve or rotation of the spine. Common adult spinal deformities are scoliosis, kyphosis, and lordosis.

  • Kyphosis involves the upper back curving forward. The condition can create the form of a hump.
  • Lordosis is also known as swayback. This is a deformity of the lower back, in which it curves inward instead of outward.
  • Scoliosis is a frontal deformity in which the spine, when viewed straight on, curves to the left or the right. This curving ordinarily ends at the same time the skeleton stops growing but in adulthood, the curve can still progress slightly, often as a result of disc degeneration.

If you are experiencing back or neck pain and think you may have a spinal deformity, but have never sought treatment, contact your doctor today.
