Adult Spine Deformity / Presented by Baptist Health Florida ( 1 hour CME)
Adult spinal deformity is becoming increasingly prevalent in the elderly population. Multiple etiologies may be involved; however, symptoms are associated with progressive and asymmetric degeneration of the discs, facet joints, and other spinal elements potentially leading to neural element compression. Symptoms and clinical presentation vary and may be related to progressive deformity, axial back pain, or neurologic symptoms. Spinal deformity is defined as a curvature in the spine where the alignment is outside of defined normal limits.
