Spine curvature can be the result of several conditions: scoliosis is a curve of the spine, usually severe, that usually begins in early childhood and may be corrected by a back brace or surgery; spinal compression fractures can result in spine curvature, called kyphosis; and osteoporosis, a weakening of the bones, can lead to a curved back, also called a dowager's hump. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about the causes of spine curvature, symptoms of spine curvature, treatment of spine curvature, and much more.
