Spine Deformities

Spine Deformities

Deformities of the spine are any abnormality of the alignment, formation, or shape of the vertebral column. These can include scoliosis, kyphosis, spondylolisthesis, multiple fractures or ankylosing spondylitis. Deformities do not usually cause pain unless the structural change reduces room in the spinal canal and puts pressure on the nerves or restricts movement.
