It is important that you understand your problem and why we are using the tools we are using to help you heal. The more you understand about your body and about what is not working that is causing you pain, the better you will be at keeping it from happening again.

A hunchback appearance of the spine maybe a sign of Scheuermann's disease, a condition caused by an enlargement or deformity of the round back portion of the thoracic spine.
People with Scheuermann's disease have wedge-shaped vertebrae in their upper spine, which is caused by the front of the upper spine not developing as quickly as the back of the spine.
The wedge-shaped vertebrae cause the upper spine to arch downward.
Technically, Scheuermann's disease is not a disease at all but rather, a condition, or abnormality in the vertebrae.
