Kyphosis and Low Back Pain

Kyphosis is a forward rounding of your upper back and might also be referred to as round back or hunchback. A little rounding of the upper back is normal but when you have kyphosis, your back is rounded more than 50 degrees. You could have a spine that looks normal if you have kyphosis or the spine could have a large hump. People of all ages can get kyphosis, although senior citizens are more susceptible to the condition. If you have kyphosis then you could have either a mild or severe form. The severity of kyphosis you have will determine what complications might develop. Kyphosis will usually come with many symptoms which should not be overlooked.

There are many different symptoms associated with kyphosis and most of them will have something to do with your back or spine. Some symptoms include mild back pain, spinal tenderness or stiffness, fatigue and a slouching posture. Fortunately, Integrity Life Sciences offers a device to help cure this disease.

Integrity Life Sciences delivers a multitude of orthotic treatment options to address one of the most costly systemic ailments in the world, chronic low back and neck pain. Our advanced solution begins with the Integrity Spinal Care System (ISCS). Our ISCS non-surgical spinal decompression therapy systems are engineered to provide pain relief for compressive and degenerative conditions of the spine. Specifically, conditions that may be treated include: neck pain and back pain associated with herniated discs, protruding discs, degenerative disc disease, posterior facet syndrome, and sciatica. It achieves these effects through decompression of intervertebral discs, that is, unloading due to distraction and positioning.

As a compliment to the ISCS, Integrity offers the very effective Integrity Gel Support Brace. Our advanced lumbar support brace is a fitting compliment to non-surgical spinal decompression therapy and was designed as an adjunct therapy for those suffering from back pain due to disc related conditions. The Integrity Gel Support Brace may be used with or without Integrity’s non-surgical spinal decompression systems and is an excellent treatment option for the patient to use at home.

In addition, Integrity Life Sciences has been exclusively granted the use of all of the technology, products, US Patent and Trademark Office’s assignments, logos and other forms of intellectual property that were created by Axiom Worldwide, Inc. The agreement specifically includes the flagship product DRX9000, its family of products, and all of its derivatives such as the DRX9000C.
