The condition likely reduces ability of balance control and mobility, restricts pulmonary functions, and induces back pain and digestive problems. These consequences lead to the loss of independence and decrease quality of life of individuals. Therefore, a method of early detection and monitoring abnormality is important to promote effectiveness of treatments and minimize harmful consequences of kyphosis.
