The dynamic measurement and conservative treatment of thoracic hyperkyphosis
Age-related hyperkyphosis of the thoracic spine is a problem which potentially affects all adults. It can result in movement dysfunction and may lead to mechanical failure of the thoracic spine, especially in the presence of osteoporosis, due to overwhelming forces exerted by gravity and muscular contraction. A number of studies have endeavoured to evaluate exercise-based programmes aimed at reducing hyperkyphosis in older adults. However, the multimodal nature of these programmes may reflect...[Show more]
