Spinal Deformities Overview:

  • Structural abnormalities in the alignment of the spine, affecting its natural curvature

  • Can be congenital or develop due to factors like growth, injury, or degenerative conditions


Types of Spinal Deformities:

  1. Scoliosis:

    • Lateral curvature of the spine, often in a "S" or "C" shape

    • Commonly develops during growth spurts in adolescence

  2. Kyphosis:

    • Excessive forward curvature of the spine, leading to a rounded upper back

    • Can result from degenerative conditions or developmental issues

  3. Lordosis:

    • Exaggerated inward curvature of the spine, particularly in the lower back

    • Often associated with conditions like obesity or muscle imbalances



Causes of Spinal Deformities:

  • Neuromuscular conditions affecting muscle control and spine alignment

  • Degenerative changes over time

  • Trauma or injury impacting spinal structure

Diagnosis and Evaluation:
