Scheuermann’s Disease

Scheuermann’s Disease is a developmental disorder of the spine which causes the abnormal growth of (usually) the thoracic (upper back) vertebrae. This condition leads to an increase in the bend in your upper back called an increased kyphosis.Scheuermann’s disease usually causes pain in and around the thoracic spine. This can then lead to some restriction in range of movement, especially into extension. The pain can be made worse by activity including sports that require a lot of twisting, bending or arching backward such as gymnastics athletics.
