Chiropractic as an ally for Hyperkyphosis

Chiropractic as a Tool for Hyperkyphosis

The curvature of our spine is vital for its proper functioning, but what happens when one of these curves is exaggerated? This is known as hyperkyphosis, commonly described as the formation of a "hump." If you have wondered how chiropractic can help you with this, read on and discover how this technique can improve your quality of life.

What is Hyperkyphosis?

Our spine is designed with three natural curvatures that aid in shock absorption and overall movement: cervical and lumbar lordosis, and dorsal kyphosis. Hyperkyphosis refers to an increase in the latter, which can give a more pronounced curved appearance to the torso, often referred to as a "hump."

Common Causes of Hyperkyphosis

  • Muscular weakness: Lack of strength in the muscles around the spine can lead to poor posture and increased dorsal curvature.
  • Bad Postures: Maintaining incorrect postures for a long time is a key factor in the development of this condition.
  • Scheuermann's disease: This is a common cause in adolescents, where the spinal discs swell abnormally.
  • Advanced age: Over time, natural degeneration of the spine can contribute to the development of hyperkyphosis.

Symptoms Associated with Hyperkyphosis

If you suffer from hyperkyphosis, you may experience:

  • Pain and contractures in shoulders, neck and back.
  • Stiffness in the back and neck.
  • Difficulty breathing due to pressure on the torso.
  • General fatigue caused by the extra effort of your body to compensate for the curvature.

No, it isn't. Chiropractic is a sanitary profession complementary to and different from medicine (according to WHO).

It is studied in specialized chiropractic universities. The chiropractic professional receives a minimum training of 5 years that guarantees the quality and safety of the service it offers.

During the chiropractic university career, you don't study surgery or pharmacy but deeper physiology, anatomy, radiology, neurology, and specific manual chiropractic techniques.
