282 Possible Causes for Kyphosis of Cervical Spine

  • Kyphosis

    Often, people born with cervical spine kyphosis will have additional birth defects, so it is apparent at birth if there is a cervical spine kyphosis birth defect.[centerforneuroandspine.com] That is, to maintain horizontal gaze, lordosis increases at the cranio-cervical junction with greater kyphosis at the middle/lower cervical spine.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] An iatrogenic cervical kyphosis can also occur after a failed attempt at a cervical spine fusion.[umm.edu]

  • Scoliosis

    The correction achieved was satisfactory in the coronal plane, but the correction of the thoracic kyphosis was insufficient to compensate for the cervical hyperextension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] What is Kyphosis? Kyphosis (a forward spinal curvature or “hunched back”) is normal in the thoracic (upper) spine. It can occur in the cervical and lumbar spine as well.[back.com] Your cervical and lumbar spines each have a lordotic curve. Your thoracic spine and sacrum have kyphotic curves.[spineuniverse.com]

  • Fracture

    Magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical spine revealed multiple small fractures at the anteroinferior endplate corners of the C3, C5 and C6 vertebrae with focal kyphosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diastrophic Dysplasia

    Forty patients with DD were studied of whom seven had cervical spine kyphosis: one patient had spontaneous correction over the ensuing two decades.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Three (3%) patients (two children, one adult) had cervical kyphosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Segmental C4/C5 kyphosis equalled 40 and the entire cervical spine exhibited 20 of kyphosis.[jcvjs.com]

  • Osteoporosis

    As the spinal column mass diminishes, dorsal kyphosis and cervical lordosis increase, leading to multiple compression fractures of the spine and a reduction in height.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    Radiographs demonstrated a severe kyphosis in the cervical spine with a locking lesion between the anterior wall of the C5 and C6 vertebrae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cervical Kyphosis A normal cervical spine will be slightly curved forward when viewed from the side.[centerforneuroandspine.com] kyphosis. 17–19 AS cervical spine fracture is different from general traumatic cervical spine fractures because of its unique pathological characteristics as follows: AS[journals.lww.com]

  • Low Anorectal Malformation

  • Whiplash Injury

    This forces the cervical spine to deform into an S-shape where the lower cervical spine is forced into a kyphosis while the upper cervical spine maintains its lordosis.[en.wikipedia.org] […] protrusion and cervical kyphosis.[physio-pedia.com] […] axial load on the lumbar spine and cervical spine.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Spinous Process Fracture

    A normal lordotic curve of the cervical spine, a mild kyphosis of the thoracic spine, and lordosis of the lumbar region are noted.[emedicine.medscape.com] Any trauma superimposed on silent cervical spondylosis can result in permanent partial disability of the cervical spine with symptoms far out of proportion to the severity[chiro.org] The natural lordotic curvature of the cervical spine is reversed in the upper thoracic spine to form a kyphosis in the T1-T2-T3 segments in most adults.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cervical Osteoarthritis

    […] osteoarthritis as follows- Stress at C5,C6, so tightness of upper cervical spine extensors.[physiotherapy-treatment.com] These changes in mechanical stability results in abnormal forward curves in the cervical spine called kyphosis.[necksolutions.com] Kyphosis of thoracic spine. Tight pectorals. Flattened, sometimes lordotic lumbar spine. Flexion of elbows and hand. Backward tilt of pelvis. Hip flexed and knee flexed.[physiotherapy-treatment.com]
