Brief Answer:
Parkinson's may cause camptocormia as well.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to "Ask a Doctor " service.

I have read your query and here is my advice.

Bent spine syndrome or camptocormia causes are considered as primary causes ( psychological, idiopathic axial myopathy ) and as secondary ( inflammatory myopathies, endocrine and metabolic myopathies, and Parkinson's disease ).

In all the cases, there is a problem with paravertebral, axial musculature.

Camptocormia in Parkinsonism for example is caused by axial musculature dystonia.

In your case Parkinson's disease is very likely to be the cause of camptocormia.

Treatment consists on a balanced diet, loosing weight ( if it's the case ), avoiding bed rest, walking with a cane or walker is encouraged, physical therapy, use of lightweight orthroses, if there is hyperactivity of the abdominal muscles injections of Botox into the rectus abdominis muscle may help.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:
Orthroses are external body supports/devices.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back.

Lightweight orthroses are external body ( trunk ) supports/ devices that tend to adjust posture passively.

In general, the paravertebral muscles ( around the spine ) are weak and abdominal muscles pull the spine forwards.

Hope this helps.

Feel free to discuss with me if you have further questions.
