Lordosis

What is Lordosis?

Lordotic curves in the spine help distribute weight and work to absorb shock along the length of the spinal column. In lordosis these curves become significantly pronounced (also known as hyper-lordosis) and render the spine ineffective in absorbing everyday shocks.
 
Symptoms
  • The most common symptom is exaggerated posture where the lower back is arched more resulting in the buttocks being pushed out and upwards.
  • In serious cases the curvature can cause pain and limit mobility
  • Pronounced lordosis is usually permanent and can lead to disc prolapsed or osteoarthritis of the spine
Cause
  • Lordosis usually develop during fetal development casing uneven height and width development of intervertabral discs
  • It can also develop in adults due to spinal degeneration and arthritis
  • Occasionally trauma suffered to the spine can also cause Lordosis
Treatment
  • Exercise therapy can help enhancing movement
  • The use of a back brace can control and correct curvature in children or adolescents
  • Serious cases of Lordosis may require corrective surgery
