Exercises to correct lumbar hyperlordosis

Updated: Jan 9

Our spines naturally curve in at the lower part (lumbar spine) and out in the top part (thoracic spine). For some people the curve in their lower backs may be increased and this can sometimes lead to lower back pain.



In this video I explain what causes hyperlordosis in the lower back and I demonstrate some exercises that you can do to improve it.



You can also download the exercises as a PDF on this page, but I would advise that you watch the video first to see how I demonstrate them.



Let me know if you have any questions. Need more help with an injury? You’re welcome to consult me online via video call for an assessment of your injury and a tailored treatment plan.

Best wishes

Maryke
