Lordosis

Common Name(s)

Lordosis

Lordosis is a condition characterized by an inward curving of the spine. The condition can be caused by many factors, such as arthritis, muscle problems, or obesity. Depending on the severity, individuals with this condition may have varying diffculty in performing physical tasks, such as walking and running. In very severe cases, individuals may have trouble performing basic day-to-day tasks. Treatment for this condition is based on the severity of the curving. Doctors may suggest individuals wear a spinal brace to correct the inner curving of the spine. Doctors may also suggest surgery in more severe cases.
