    Scoliosis & Kyphosis

    What is the difference between these, or are they the same My last MRI showed 36 degrees of kyphosis and fusion at T7/8. I forgot to ask the Doc, we were talking about my syrinx. Is this why I sit so crooked?

    SColiosis is an Shaped curve to the spine- more side to side.
    Kyphosis is more of a humping of the spine- more front to back.
    Possibly. It can possibly get worse over time for some. TLSO or brace helps.
