Lordosis – Spinal curvature

Lordosis

Lordosis is defined as an excessive inward curve of the spine. It differs from the spine's normal curves at the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar regions, which are, to a degree, either kyphotic (near the neck) or lordotic (closer to the low back). The spine's natural curves position the head over the pelvis and work as shock absorbers to distribute mechanical stress during movement.
