About Spinal Deformities
When the vertebrae in your spine become misaligned, abnormal spinal curvatures can result. The most common conditions are adult scoliosis (curved spine), flat back syndrome (loss of the spine’s curve), kyphosis (hunchback), and spondylolisthesis, which occurs when one or more vertebrae move out of alignment.
A mild abnormal spinal curve may not cause symptoms. However, some people experience pain that can range from mild to debilitating. When spinal curvature disorders start to affect your daily living, we can help you get relief through conservative, nonsurgical treatment options including physical therapy and spinal injections. Surgery is often the best option for relief from severe back pain and other serious symptoms, including breathing problems.
