back pain


Lordosis refers to natural lordotic curve of the spine. Everyone’s spine curves a little in the neck, upper back and lower back. These curves, which create spine’s S shape are called lordotic (neck and lower back) and kyphotic (upper back). Lordotic and kyphotic help to absorb shock, support the weight of the head, align the head over the pelvis, stabilize and maintain structure.

If lordotic curve arches too far inward, it can affect the lower back and neck. This can lead to excess pressure on the spine, causing pain and discomfort. It can affected the ability to move if it’s severe and left untreated.

Treatment of lordosis depends on how serious the curve is and how the person got lordosis. There is a little medical concern if lower back curve reverses itself when the person bend forward. If this is the case, the person affected can probably manage the condition with physical therapy and daily exercises.


In most cases treatment is not necessary unless lordosis is severe. Treatment for lordosis will depend on how severe the curve is and the presence of other symptoms. Treatment options include medication to reduce pain and swelling, daily physical therapy to strengthen muscles and range of motion, weight loss to help posture, braces in children and teens, surgery in severe cases with neurological concerns. Nutritional supplements such as vitamin D.
