They told me it was hereditary but I never had pain till I had car accident. Dealing with this disease I have constant pain and depression due to not being able to do things I used to do. Try to adjust and live life the best way you can don't care what other people say about you because your not working due to pain,stiffness,and depression. Keep in mind that these symptoms will probably never go away and adjust in life. Anyone respond who have same problem with it?

Hi, I am 20 yrs old and have Schuermanns Disease witch is excessive thoracic kyphosis with wedging of 5 deg or more of at least 3 adjacent apical vertebrae and vertebral end plate irregularities. Problems become in puberty. I’ve find that aetiology of Scheuermann's disease remains unknown. There is however a strong family tendency and enchondral ossification of the vertebral bodies appears to be the abnormal factor contributing to wedging of the bodies. Doc prescribed me analgesics and anti-inflammatories.
