Loss of Lumbar Lordosis

Postby mathsparks » Wed Jul 21, 2010 9:20 pm

Sent my girl for an xray recently when she complained about increasing pains and aches on her back. Xray revealed this condition which I've never heard of. Read up about it and it refers to the spine lacking a natural curve.

Anyone has experience with this? Her specialist appointment is next Wed, and I'm hoping it's nothing too serious. :pray:

Strange thing is, when in sec school, she had a slight curvature, which was monitored for a while and now, lack of curvature? :? Perhaps she over-compensated and became too ramrod straight when she sits/stands. :(

Hope it turns out to be a small thing, that can be set right. :xedfingers:
Sorry cant help with info.

I worry abt my daughters posture too, she is pretty tall for P6 and quite lanky, and is always bent over.

Take care

I hope it's minor too, and perhaps just some kinda therapy needed. Thanks, sun!

I guess you've to constantly remind your girls to stand tall and chin up, lest they become hunch.
