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.[] That is, to maintain horizontal gaze, lordosis increases at the cranio-cervical junction with greater kyphosis at the middle/lower cervical spine.[] An iatrogenic cervical kyphosis can also occur after a failed attempt at a cervical spine fusion.[]

  • 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.[] 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.[] Your cervical and lumbar spines each have a lordotic curve. Your thoracic spine and sacrum have kyphotic curves.[]

  • 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[]

  • 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.[] Three (3%) patients (two children, one adult) had cervical kyphosis.[] Segmental C4/C5 kyphosis equalled 40 and the entire cervical spine exhibited 20 of kyphosis.[]

  • 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.[]

  • 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.[] Cervical Kyphosis A normal cervical spine will be slightly curved forward when viewed from the side.[] kyphosis. 17–19 AS cervical spine fracture is different from general traumatic cervical spine fractures because of its unique pathological characteristics as follows: AS[]

  • 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.[] […] protrusion and cervical kyphosis.[] […] axial load on the lumbar spine and cervical spine.[]

  • 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.[] 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[] 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.[]

  • Cervical Osteoarthritis

    […] osteoarthritis as follows- Stress at C5,C6, so tightness of upper cervical spine extensors.[] These changes in mechanical stability results in abnormal forward curves in the cervical spine called kyphosis.[] 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.[]
