Overview

Kyphosis is a curvature in the sagittal plane (front to back plane) of the body with the apex of the curve directed posteriorly. It exists as part of the normal spine alignment and may measure up to forty-five degrees. Studies looking at chest radiographs in normal individuals have shown that this number can increase with age.

Curvatures in the coronal plane (side to side plane) are not part of the normal spine alignment and when they exist, with a minimum of 10 degrees, it is called scoliosis. A variety of causes and conditions may result in excessive kyphosis, however, the types that are seen most frequently include postural kyphosis and Scheuermann’s kyphosis.




The Scoliosis Research Society defines kyphosis as a curvature of the spine measuring 45 degrees or greater on an x-ray. The normal spine has only 20 to 45 degrees of curvature in the upper back area. Kyphosis is a type of spinal deformity and should not be confused with poor posture.

Kyphosis in Children

Both boys and girls get kyphosis. Postural kyphosis (roundback) is a mild curve that is more common in girls than in boys. Scheuermann kyphosis is about twice as common in boys as it is in girls.

While babies can be born with kyphosis (congenital kyphosis), other forms of the problem often appear as children approach their teenage years.
