What is Hyperlordosis?
Lordosis refers to your natural lordotic curve, which is normal. But if your curve arches too far inward, it’s called lordosis, swayback, or Hyperlordosis. Hyperlordosis can affect your lower back and neck. This can lead to excess pressure on the spine, causing pain and discomfort. It can affect your ability to move if it’s severe and left untreated.
Treatment of hyperlordosis depends on how serious the curve is and how you got lordosis. There’s little medical concern if your lower back curve reverses itself when you bend forward. Not every lordosis requires medical treatment. However, when the curve is rigid (fixed) and causes symptoms, medical evaluation is warranted.
