Loss of thoracic kyphosis in scoliosis patients


Loss of Thoracic Kyphosis in Scoliosis Patients

The normal physiological curve in the sagittal plane is thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis, while scoliosis patients in the process of deterioration, the thoracic vertebrae gradually moves forward, which also makes the area between the two scapulars collapsing, that is to say, most scoliosis patients are not a hunchback, in fact, they are flat back disorder!

Because of the shortening of the anteroposterior diameter of the chest, the cardiopulmonary function is often affected in patients with moderate to severe scoliosis. This is a knotty problem in idiopathic scoliosis. Moreover, the normal physiological curve in the triaxial plane (frontal, sagittal, horizontal plane) is gradually lost, which has a great relationship with the deterioration and quality of life.

In the process of scoliosis rehabilitation, we care about every detail, which makes us closer to the normal.
