Scheuermann's disease - Definition


Definition


Scheuermann's disease, also called painful adolescent vertebral epiphysitis, is an alteration of the spine that occurs during adolescence. It is more common in boys than in girls, and is observed by the presence of a dorsal kyphosis, a major spinal curvature. Scheuermann's disease can be asymptomatic and be discovered during an x-ray of the spine showing an exaggerated thoracic kyphosis, but sometimes causes pain or stiffness. Generally, Scheuermann's disease can be corrected by physical therapy, strengthening the back and abdominal muscles, or wearing a corset.
