Hypoplasia can greatly effect the spine and surrounding area. Learn more about Hypoplasia in Dr. Anthony Leone’s Knowledge Center.

When the spine is underdeveloped or has incomplete development it is called hyperplastic. Hypoplasia often effect the lumbar area of the spine and is most commonly associated with spinal strain, trauma and incorrect posture. The opposite to hyperplasia is hypoplasia in which the spine enlarges.
