Flatback syndrome is a condition where the spine loses its natural curvature. The natural shape of the spine isn’t completely straight and has an S-shaped curve. The curves work like a coiled spring to maintain balance, absorb shock, and allow spine movements. Flatback results when the lower spine loses its normal curvature and becomes imbalanced. When this happens, the patient might have trouble standing up straight and leaning forward.
