Kyphosis

Kyphosis refers to the abnormally excessive convex kyphotic curvature of the spine as it occurs in the cervical, thoracic and sacral regions.
(Normal inward concave curving of the cervical and lumbar regions of the spine is called lordosis.) 
Kyphosis can be called round back or Kelso's hunchback. It can result from degenerative diseases such as arthritis; developmental problems, most commonly Scheuermann's disease; osteoporosis with compression fractures of the vertebra; Multiple myeloma or trauma. 
A normal thoracic spine extends from the 1st to the 12th vertebra and should have a slight kyphotic angle, ranging from 20° to 45°. When the "roundness" of the upper spine increases past 45° it is called kyphosis or "hyperkyphosis". Scheuermann's kyphosis is the most classic form of hyperkyphosis and is the result of wedged vertebrae that develop during adolescence. The cause is not currently known and the condition appears to be multifactorial and is seen more frequently in males than females.[4]

In the sense of a deformity, it is the pathological curving of the spine, where parts of the spinal column lose some or all of their lordotic profile. 
This causes a bowing of the back, seen as a slouching posture.

While most cases of kyphosis are mild and only require routine monitoring, serious cases can be debilitating. 
High degrees of kyphosis can cause severe pain and discomfort, breathing and digestion difficulties, cardiovascular irregularities, neurological compromise and, in the more severe cases, significantly shortened life spans. 
These types of high-end curves typically do not respond well to conservative treatment and almost always warrant spinal fusion surgery, which can successfully restore the body's natural degree of curvature. 
The Cobb angle is the preferred method of measuring kyphosis.

 

Hyper Extension Orthosis ASH Brace SALO

Rs 2,439.00

SALO Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis TLSO a unique prefabricated for postoperative, post-traumatic, or chronic spinal pathology. The Duel TLSO provides full-circumferential rigid support from the scapular thoracic region (T2/T3) of the spine down to the Sacro coccygeal junction (S1). The TLSO design creates a 3-point force system, consisting of a posteriorly directed force from the sternal and pubic pads, and an interiorly directed force from the thoracolumbar pad. The pressure created restricts forward flexion and encourages a hyperextension posture.

Rs 1,396.00

VISSCO Ash Brace Hyper Extension Brace Special Size PC0810 are used to treat fractures and back pain that occur where the thoracic spine (upper back) meets the lumbar spine(low back). It is designed to limit movement in these two regions of the spine. Hyperextension braces prevent you from bending forward too much. In turn, this prevents you from potentially interfering with the healing of your spinal compression fracture and sensitive spinal structures. It maintains the position of thoracic as well as the lumbar spine in hyperextension position.
