Symptoms of Hyper-Lordosis

The main sign of hyper-lordosis is a swayback look in both children and adults with the condition. Hyper-lordosis can make their bottoms stand out.

Hyper-Lordosis Diagnosis

When your child comes to our clinic, we take an X-ray of the spine to see how much it curves. We will look for any problems with the nervous system or muscles that might be related to hyper-lordosis.

We also will check your child's hips since hyper-lordosis is sometimes is a sign of hip dislocation.
