Diagnosis of Kyphosis

Progressive Spine & Orthopaedics diagnoses Kyphosis by assessing the curvature of the patient’s spine. Once kyphosis is discovered Dr. Joshua Rovner will begin additional testing. These tests may include an x-ray. MRIs, and lung functions exams. The additional testing will allow Progressive Spine & Orthopaedics to see if the Kyphosis has effected the patient’s nervous system.

Treatment of Kyphosis

Depending on the age of onset and possible underlying factors, there are numerous treatment options available for Kyphosis. When Kyphosis begins in adolescence a brace and physical therapy is normally sufficient to correct the irregularity. However surgery is sometimes required in my severe cases. If caught early, most young patients will have positive outcomes.

If another underlying condition is the cause of the kyphosis, treatment of that condition is often the first step towards fixing this spine problem.

Prevention of Kyphosis

Kyphosis is not a preventable condition. The best way to manage it is early detection and treatment. Contact Progressive Spine and Orthopaedics for information on your individual case.
