Cervical kyphosis is a condition characterized by an abnormal forward curvature of the cervical spine, leading to a rounded or hunched appearance of the neck. At Align Health, we understand the impact of cervical kyphosis on your neck health and overall well-being, and our dedicated team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing effective management, restoring proper alignment, and promoting neck health.
Understanding Cervical Kyphosis:
Cervical kyphosis can result from various factors, such as poor posture, degenerative changes in the spine, trauma, congenital conditions, or underlying medical issues. This condition may lead to neck pain, stiffness, reduced neck mobility, and in severe cases, compression of the spinal cord, causing neurological symptoms like weakness or numbness in the arms and hands.
At Align Health, we begin the management process by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of your cervical kyphosis. Our experienced healthcare providers will review your medical history, discuss your symptoms, and perform a physical examination, including imaging studies, to assess the severity and underlying causes of the cervical curvature.
Personalized Treatment Plan:
Based on the evaluation, we will create a tailored treatment plan that may include a combination of the following approaches:
Chiropractic Care: Gentle adjustments can help realign the cervical spine, reducing the kyphotic curvature, and promoting better neck alignment.
Posture Correction: We will provide guidance on posture improvement to prevent further strain on the cervical spine and neck muscles.
Physical Therapy: Customized exercises and stretches will be prescribed to strengthen neck muscles, improve flexibility, and enhance overall neck health.
Pain Management: Various pain-relieving techniques such as cold laser therapy or ultrasound may be used to provide relief from neck pain associated with cervical kyphosis.
Lifestyle Modifications: We may provide recommendations on ergonomics, sleep positions, and other lifestyle changes to support neck health and reduce discomfort.
