Lordosis: Is increased curvature, normally in cervical or lumbar regions of spine. The change in angle change in the vertebrae can lead to loss of strength of structures, increased arthritis and chance of nerve irritation. Generally, lumbar lordosis stems from abdominal weakness and often obesity as well as it changes your abdominal center of gravity. Hope that helps!
