LS spine gone straight?

Has anyone heard of the LS spine becoming straight? The last set of Xrays I had done on my LS spine my doc said my LS spine was straight and didn't have a curve to it anymore? This is confusing to me. Does anyone know anything about this? What causes it? Is there any treatment for it? I'd really appreciate any input.


  • My son's X-rays show the same thing. Not sure if this applies to your situation, but our doc said back pain causes the loss of lordosis - or straightening of the spine. He said that the pain causes the muslces to contract and pull the spine straight. I haven't heard of a treatment yet. Best of luck to you!
  • Thank you both for the input. I think it's going to be awhile before I can get any help with it due to insurance issues. Thank you again.
