  • You can search up at the top of the page for medical terms. I have this also and my doctor explained that the spine is supposed to be curved a certain way. And when you have issues the curve can be reversed to some degree. Sometimes it's because of vertebra or disk problems and sometimes it is from muscles guarding the spine.

    This is what my doctor explained to me. Do some research and talk to your doctor. He's the only one who can explain what that report means to you.

    GOod Luck and let us know what happens.
  • Thats exactly what i was told as well, some therapy for it could help the bulging disc.Have you tried that yet? Did your doctor give you muscle relaxants or pain meds at all?
  • I have reversal of the normal curve, lordosis as well and C6-C7 with nerve impinging. My first pains were 20 years ago and relieved with a muscle relaxant Valium I took for 9 months for the pain to go away and I've had Physiotherapy also and ultrasound that helped. I hope your Dr. can give you some treatment options to help your pain. Do you have any sciatica as well? I take Cymbalta to help with sciatica for one arm is painful and numb at times. I hope you get in to see your Dr. soon. Take care. Charry

  • Here's a link to the Medical Term Glossary on Spine Health. This one is specifically Lordosis, however you can also search for other terms as well.
