With Hyperkyphosis  one has an excessive forward curvature in the upper region of the spine.

Hyperkyphosis affects more men than women. This person’s spine may be curved due to Scheuermann’s disease or another abnormality. But equally the curvature may simply have been caused by poor posture and  getting older.

How Does Hyperkyphosis Affect the Body?


Kyphosis patients can usually be recognised by their visibly hunched backs, but this is just one of the many ways in which Hyperkyphosis can affect one’s body.


Other symptoms of Kyphosis include:


  • Back pain
  • Stiffness and discomfort
  • Reduced mobility / flexibility
  • Fatigue
  • Poor body image
  • But that’s not all. A severe kyphotic spinal curve can even interfere with the body’s most fundamental inner workings, such as the respiratory and digestive systems.
