Kyphosis, also known as hunchback, is a fairly common conditions in which there is a forward rounding of the mid to upper back, giving the appearance of a hump. The most common cause of kyphosis is poor posture, although it can also be genetic. It can be painful and care can help those who suffer from kyphosis. Upon initial diagnostic testing, such as x-rays or an MRI, a skilled chiropractor can determine the exact cause of the kyphosis and develop a personalized treatment plan based on what is causing the condition. Treatment methods include chiropractic adjustments, exercise, spinal decompression, electrical stimulation, physical therapy exercises, and ultrasound.

To help determine the diagnosis of kyphosis, your chiropractor will ask about your medical history and do a physical examination at your initial appointment. He or she may also use techniques called motion and static palpation to feel for tenderness, tightness, and how well your spinal joints move. Please call 860-621-2225 to schedule an appointment.
