Usually one doesn't


Lumbar lordosis is usually not an issue unless it is due to an increase in upper back forward bend or rounding known as kyphosis or due to an underlying spine issue like a spondylolisthesis or even related to a hip/pelvis problem. Exercises in general are good involing cardio routines and flexibility but core ones like Yoga and Pilates are great in addition.

Core strengthening


Core strengthening and stretching exercises can be generally helpful, but they have not been shown to help the size of the scoliosis itself. So e patients with increased lumbar lordosis will have subtle hip flexion contractors and so stretching out the hips is important. Thank you for your question.

McKenzie Exercises


PT for back and neck conditions involve stretching, strengthening, and SOME range of motion. These exercises start VERY gently, and then are progressed by a certified PT based upon patient response. All patients are different, so the exact exercises differ as does the progress. Pilates is also excellent for the core (yoga and PiYo other options) if you want non-medical option.

Yes


There are many, many toning exercises for the abdominal region. All of them require effort to do well, so I don't know that the word "easily" really applies. Your back problems will limit motion. Look for exercises, like Pilates for example, that use only a slight range of motion but still manage to provide significant toning. And be careful; if it hurts, ease up a bit. Don't over do.

I have excessive lumbar lordosis from sitting too much ever since I was small. Can this be corrected through any exercises, or are attempts futile?

Unlikely


It is unlikely that you will be able to substantially change your mature skeletal frame with any non-surgical treatment. However, exercise and stretching as well as PT or chiropractic care can help with any discomfort.

What is spine surgery to correct lumbar lordosis?

Answered by:
Dr. Edward W. Hellman
Orthopedic Surgery

Swayback


There is a normal amount of lordosis in the lumbar spine, which is approximately 55 degrees. When you have a lordosis significantly more than this, it is called hyperlordosis, which is a way to say "swayback". A spinal surgery to correct this would be known as a spinal reconstruction surgery because it is an attempt to reconstruct the normal alignment of the spine. Thanks.

 Abdominal obesity Hyperlordosis Imaging Kyphosis Lordosis Neck Obesity Osteoporosis Physical therapy Physiotherapy Spondylolisthesis

Lordosis


Spine normally curves at the neck and the lower back. This is an inward curve, called lordosis. When the spine curves too far inward, the condition is called hyperlordosis or swayback. Certain conditions can contribute to this including spondylolisthesis, kyphosis, obesity, and osteoporosis. If this is causing pain you may need an exam and imaging studies. Physical therapy helps with pain.

Neck spasm


Significant muscle spasms usually will cause reversed lordosis of the neck spine. You will need an evaluation from a rehabilitation medicine specialist and probably undergo physical therapy also.
