The Natural Way to Treat Arthritis Pain- Without Medication
Hyperlordosis is an excessive inward curvature of the lower spine that causes the buttocks to become more prominent and the stomach to stick out.
When lying on their back, a person with hyperlordosis may have a noticeable c-shaped curve or large gap in their lower back area. People sometimes refer to this exaggerated posture as "swayback."
Hyperlordosis can sometimes also cause pain and discomfort in the lower back, which may affect movement or get worse with prolonged standing.
Hyperlordosis can result from spinal injuries or conditions such as obesity, osteoporosis, spondylolisthesis, and rickets.
Treatment options depend on the person's age and the severity of the curvature and symptoms.
A doctor may recommend that children with hyperlordosis wear a back brace while they are still growing. For adults, a doctor may recommend conservative treatments, such as OTC pain relievers, physical therapy, and weight management.
In rare instances, a doctor may recommend corrective surgery.
