The spine has two natural curves. It’s naturally shaped like an “S” to help with weight support and balance. On the lower back, known as the lumbar region, the inward curve is called lordosis. On the upper back, known as the thoracic region, the outward curve is known as kyphosis.
According to our spine surgeon in Palm Beach County, patients who exhibit no lordosis or kyphosis have a condition called flatback syndrome, which can lead to several complications and health problems.
