Swayback: While lordosis is normal curvature of the lumbar spine, excessive lordosis (swayback) can be a potential cause of pain if it results in abnormal loading and biomechanics of the spinal segments. This condition is also associated with anterior pelvic tilt, tight hip flexors, and lax hip extensors. Treatment can include stretching of the iliopsoas muscles and tightening of the hamstring muscles.
