Hyperlordosis - lordosis
Lordosis indicates, on the one hand, the natural curvature of the spine, on the other hand, an abnormal deviation from that curvature. Sometimes the term hyperlordosis is also used to denote this pathological bend.
The cause of this anomaly is usually shortened, stiff, worn out muscles of the back and weakened muscles of the abdomen or other areas. This causes unpleasant, painful conditions, which may be relieved by HillViltal's natural products.

Ointments for back pain
The number one thing necessary when attempting to get rid of hyperlordosis is changing movement habits. Lack of movement can be replaced with regular exercise, if your occupation is sedentary, take frequent breaks to get muscles moving, if you are overweight, start working towards weight reduction. Allow these changes some time to bring about results.

Back - important facts
The terms lordosis and kyphosis are used to denote the natural curvature of the human spine. In fact, there are two types of kyphosis and two lordosis. The human spine has an S-shape and thus four natural curves. They start from head to pelvis in this order:
cervical lordosis - thoracic kyphosis - lumbar lordosis - lumbar kyphosis.
The S-shape of the spine has a couple of essential functions in the human body. It has a supportive and facilitating role and can absorb shocks. The human spine doesn’t have the s-shape right after birth but develops it over time. Cervical lordosis in a child can develop as soon as the child starts to lift his or her head from a lying position. Lumbar lordosis develops at a time when the child learns to stand and walk.
Excessive curvature of the spine - hyperlordosis - can either have cervical or lumbar character with lumbar being more common.
The leading cause of hyperlordosis is an imbalance in the strength of the abdominal, back, butt and thigh muscles and the pressure developed on these muscles. While the pressure on the selected back muscles results in their shortening, the abdominal muscles become weak and stretched on the opposite side of the torso.
This imbalance causes deformation of the shape of the spine over time and leads to deviations from the proper posture. Non-correction of this imbalance leads to intense pains, in later stages even to disruption of the structure of the vertebrae or to a herniated disc. In general, three groups of causes of hyperlordosis can be distinguished:
Congenital causes usually originate at the time of intrauterine development.
Hyperlordosis can be blamed on the modern way of life. Lack of exercise, poor body posture, sitting for a long time, sedentary occupation, weakened muscles can all be the cause.
Wrong body posture can lead to excessive pressure put on some back muscles which leads to their shortening. This leads to insufficient blood flow in this area ultimately leading to a deformation or abnormal curvature of the spine.
In short, hyperlordosis causes can be summarized in a few points:
- Vitamin D insufficiency,
- Overweight and obesity,
- Poor body posture,
- Excessive pressure,
- Sedentary occupation,
- Flat feet,
- Muscle imbalance.
Changes in the shape of the spine bring discomfort. Main symptoms include pain in different areas based on the type of hyperlordosis. Cervical hyperlordosis causes pain in the neck muscles that has a tendency to shoot down in the shoulder blades and cause shoulder and head pain.
In case of lumbar hyperlordosis, pain appears in the lumbar part of the spine and spreads onto other areas as well.
Abnormal bending of the spine in the groin area can also cause weakening of the pelvic muscles, which may be associated with problems with the genital organs.
For both types of hyperlordosis stands true the fact that they largely limit a person’s mobility. The most flexible part is the cervical area. Ordinary movements can become extremely painful.
Unresolved, long-term abnormal curvature of the spine can lead to severe changes in vertebral structure, causing a herniated disc. These critical changes in the spine can lead to compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, that is, radicular syndrome. This results in unpleasant tingling, numbness, muscle weakness, and the like.
Solution to hyperlordosis
The diagnosis comes before treatment. In the diagnosis of hyperlordosis, a history of this defect should be recorded. It is crucial to determine the approximate time when abnormal curvature occurred. Question is whether the condition is getting worse and the pain is intensifying. Medical specialists use different methods for diagnosing hyperlordosis such as x-ray, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). All these methods can reveal any damage done to the vertebrae or display a herniated disc.
Exercise and muscle strength
There are various approaches one can take to treat hyperlordosis. It depends on the extent to which the curvature is fixed by vertebrae, that is, by bones or muscles. In childhood, hyperlordosis can be corrected and cured completely using various corsets, strengthening some muscle groups, adopting a proper body posture, etc. Other means such as massages, rehabilitation or physiotherapy can also help.
Natural vs. synthetic
Various means may be used to relieve pain. Usually, painkillers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or muscle relaxants are recommended to patients. These products should not be taken for a long time as they often cause unpleasant side effects, such as irritation of the gastric mucosa, similar digestion or cardiovascular problems.
HillVital offers an alternative solution to these means - balsams developed specifically for stifling pains. A person that suffers from hyperlordosis regularly faces muscle pain. For muscle pain relief, you can choose ointments such as Master balsam or Kapsamax depending on the type of pain and symptoms. Choose the best product for you.
