19 Possible Causes for Lack of Lumbar Lordosis

  • Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia, Cantu Type

    […] of lumbar lordosis anterior scalloping vertebral bodies Growth Height: normal birth length short stature, disproportionate short limb Head And Neck Mouth: large mouth thick[] […] long bones limited supination limited pronation Skeletal Feet: brachydactyly short feet brachymetatarsals Skeletal Spine: cuboid-shaped vertebral bodies mild platyspondyly lack[]

  • Musculoskeletal Lower Back Pain

    Lack of lumbar lordosis (i.e. a flat lower spine) is often associated with low back pain. Click this link to jump to the section on inspection in the video.[] Appreciate the normal posterior curviture of the upper spine (kyphosis) and the normal anterior curviture of the lower spine (lordosis).[]

  • Straight Back Syndrome

    In many individuals, lack of lumbar lordosis does not produce symptoms. Those patients who are symptomatic however, can be treated.[] During the aging process, for example, inter intervertebral disks lose water, degenerate and shrink; as the height of the spinal column shortens, lumbar lordosis may be lost[]

  • Hip Contracture

    As a result, it was revealed that whether lack of mobility caused by hip flexion contracture was compensated for by pelvic tilt an an increase of lumbar lordosis or not was[]

  • Pyknodysostosis

    There are also a number of spinal abnormalities such as pronounced lumbar lordosis, anomalous segmentation of vertebrae, especially in the cervical and lumbar regions, as[] X-rays - Findings may include delayed fontanelle and suture closure, skull bossing in the frontal and occipital bones, flat mandibular angle, beaked nose, paranasal sinuses lacking[]

  • X-Linked Intellectual Disability-Psychosis-Macroorchidism Syndrome

    […] full extension of elbows sometimes - difficult IV kyphosis, lumbar lordosis - avoid spinal anesthetic all pregnant women with achondroplasia need c/s - pelvis too small some[] […] monitoring with regular exams Achondroplasia anesthetic risk manipulation of the neck - risk of spinal cord compression bc of small FM appropriate dose of meds for size lack[]

  • Spondylocarpotarsal Synostosis

    Standard X-rays (see Isidor et al 2 – cited above – for radiographs) showed progressive thoracic scoliosis, lumbar lordosis, lack of normal segmentation of T7–11 vertebral[]

  • Lumbosacral Instability

    […] low thoracic in lordosis, with an associated lack of hip flexion – Arc of pain into flexion and a tendency to use the hands to return from flexion – During backward bending[] Specific muscle tests – non functional cognitive tests and therefore lack specificity – Pelvic floor and transverse abdominal wall (supine, side-lying, sitting) – Lumbar multifidus[] […] with co-contraction of transverse abdominal wall muscles in neutral lordosis (prone, side-lying, four point kneeling, sitting) – Gluteus maximus (prone) – Iliopsoas (hip[]

  • Camurati-Engelmann Syndrome

    Other symptoms include bowed legs, unusually long limbs, spine problems such as scoliosis or lumbar lordosis, and flat feet.[] People with the disease may complain of headaches, lack of energy or appetite, vision problems, and an aching feeling in their hands and feet and, less often, in the jaw.[]

  • Lumbar Osteoarthritis

    The findings of the studies that have examined the correlation of lumbar osteoarthritis and lordosis are contradictory.[] A number of studies have been conducted where radiographic evidence of lumbar osteoarthritis was present and lordosis was measured, but no attempt was made to investigate[] This lack of standardization between reports causes difficulty in making exact comparisons.[]
