3 Types of Spine Curvature
The spine is one of the most important parts of the body. However, some people develop or are born with spinal abnormalities. When a person has a spinal abnormality, he/she may have a misaligned or exaggerated area in the spine. This might be caused by heredity, poor posture, spine infections, spine tumors or other health problems. There are three types of spine curvatures:
It is typical for a person to have an arch on the back. However, people with lordosis can have this arch in a far, inward manner. This might affect one’s movements. Lordosis is also known as “swayback”.
Kyphosis is an abnormality that can be distinguished by an exaggerated, rounded back. Through x-ray testing and other forms of tests, a Kyphosis can be diagnosed when the curvature of the spine is more than fifty degrees. Kyphosis is more common with older women.
Most adolescents are diagnosed with this type of spine curvature. A person with Scoliosis has a sideway spine curvature. The curvature may be characterized by an “S-shape” or a “C-shape”. Treatments to Scoliosis vary according to the degrees of the curvature.
