Kyphosis: Causes And Treatment

Dr. Adam Geronemus, Associate Director of the Fibroid Center at South Miami Hospital, says kyphosis is when your spine angles change and you are actually hunched over and looking down. "And the main cause of kyphosis happens in the thoracolumbar junction which is from the eleventh thoracic spine to about the second lumbar vertebral body." He also explains if you have a compression that causes wedging where the anterior portion of this vertebral body is lower than the posterior portion, you lose height.
