Brief Answer:
There is no definite treatment, possible treatment ways below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for posting your query here at HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

There is no definitive treatment about bent spine syndrome, or camptocormia.

Treatment ways depend on the cause of this syndrome.

If primary bent spine syndrome (no evident other related medical conditions), treatment focuses on relieving pain if any, osteoporosis treatment, good nutrition and hydration, physical therapy and body weight control.

If bent spine syndrome is secondary, or related to other medical conditions such hypothyroidism, Parkinson disease, good control of these conditions, besides above mentioned measures, are needed.

Lightweight appropriate braces are used also.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

I have used skelaxin occasionally. I also have osteoarthritis for which I use a tins unit for pain management. The familial tremor is also in my family. Yesterday I had an episode where I lost muscle control, could not Stan or walk and had full body tremors. I had used the tins for 36 hours and taken a skelaxin. The ER gave me 3 of Ativan over four hour before the shaking subsided. My pcp will work me up for Parkinson s and ms. I m 60. What do you think?
