Scheuermann's disease is a self-limiting skeletal disorder of childhood. Scheuermann's disease describes a condition where the vertebrae grow unevenly with respect to the sagittal plane; that is, the posterior angle is often greater than the anterior.This uneven growth results in the signature "wedging" shape of the vertebrae, causing kyphosis.It is named after Danish surgeon Holger Scheuermann.Pronunciation: /ˈʃuːərmən/, though very often .
Scheuermann's Disease Prognosis? The pain from active Scheuermann’s Disease will eventually pass and for the majority of people, they will have no further trouble from their thoracic vertebrae. Some people will have reduced range of movement and if the disease caused significant kyphosis (bend) then they can get ongoing postural issues.
Treatment for Scheuermann's kyphosis depends on the patient's age, severity of the curve and, if there are any neurological problems (very uncommon). However, the course of treatment is generally the following: Bracing. If the curve progresses or for more severe cases, a back brace may be needed to.
Sep 29, 2009 · In contemporary literature few have written in detail on the in-brace correction effects of braces used for the treatment of hyperkyphosis. Bradford et al. found their attempts effective, treating Scheuermann's kyphosis with Milwaukee braces, but their report did not specifically focus on in-brace corrections. White and Panjabi's research attempted to correct a curvature of > 50° with the Cited by: 23.
