Expert Answer:


Hunchback is the abnormal outward curvature of the spine in the thoracic region. It is also known as kyphosis and humpback, and in its severe form a noticeable hump is evident on the back. Hunchback may be congenital, but it can also result from poor posture, uneven growth of the spine, degenerative diseases, fracture of vertebrae, or deficiency disorders that lead to a weakening or collapse of the vertebrae.
