See below: A loss of lumbar lordosis means that the natural curvature of the lumbar spine straightens out. This can be seen with arthritis of the spine as well as tightening of the muscles in the lumbar area. Some people have less lordosis than others so it is not always a problem. Talk to your doctor about it.
