Spine Curvature Disorders

1 What are Spine Curvature Disorders?

In spine curvature disorders, the natural curve of the spine is misaligned or increased in certain areas.

This is usually seen in conditions like:

  • Lordosis – This condition is also called sway back. Here the spine curves considerably inward at the lower back
  • Kyphosis – In this condition the upper back is significantly curved
  • Scoliosis – The spine is curved to the side in this case. The curve of scoliosis is often S-shaped or C-shaped
