What is a reverse lumbar curve and how does it affect your health?

Chiropractors treat many conditions resulting from consistently poor posture, including a reverse lumbar curve. While there are natural curves throughout the neck and the spinal system that develop throughout childhood, sometimes people lose this curvature as they get older. Although this is often linked to the natural aging process, it can also be accelerated by slouched postures. In some cases, people are born with a reversed curve.

It's important to have an intact lumbar curve to support healthy spinal motion. A healthy lumbar lordosis is when the concave side faces backward. If a reverse lumbar curve is not corrected, the spine will struggle to function properly and neck pain will likely persist as the spine needs to compensate for the reversed curved. Chiropractic treatments can help to minimize pain and proactively address a reverse lumbar curve before it leads to further issues, including low back pain, dizziness, disc bulges, hernias, arthritis, and spinal degeneration.

Think of arches when you go to a huge cathedral. The arch is the strongest part of the structure. Think of the curve in your lower back as an arch. It keeps you strong and helps support tje weight of your body. When the curve is decreased you can experience serious bouts of back pain. Your chiropractor can help restore the lumbar curve helping you to avoid a bad back. You will need an x-ray to see if the curve is lost. The loss of normal curve will prematurely age your spine and can detract from the quality of life.
