Also called a swayback, the spine of a person with Hyperlordosis curves significantly inward at the lower back.

Swayback is a type of spine curvature that positions your shoulders behind your hips as opposed to keeping them centered. Swayback is simply an exaggerated case of lumbar lordosis— a curvature in the lower back that increases pressure on your spine, leading to pain and if left untreated a limited ability to move.

What causes Hyperlordosis?


The first thing to note about hyperlordosis is that it can impact people of all genders and ages. The condition is frequently caused by bad posture, along with a number of other contributing factors and conditions, including:


  • Obesity
  • Spinal injury
  • Sitting or standing for extended periods of time
  • Uneven muscles, particularly a weak core
  • Injuries and trauma gained while dancing
