Depending on the age of the patient, the importance of their curvature (hyperlordosis) or of their deficiency (hypolordosis), various treatments steps may be proposed them.
EXERCISES FOR LORDOSIS
Lordosis-specific exercises are adapted to the patient’s condition, depending on whether they suffer from hyperlodosis or hypolordosis. Their aim is to improve overall posture, to strengthen and stretch certain strategic muscles, as well as to stimulate the neuromuscular system to adopt a corrective movement contrary to the abnormal curve so as to positively impact the condition.
When the abnormal curvature is not severe enough to warrant another therapeutic strategy, these exercises can be proposed as a standalone treatment. Their aim is to improve muscular balance through posture and to reduce any existing pain.
If the condition is deemed to be progressive and treatment to be inevitable in the short or long term, the exercises may serve to prepare the patient for this next treatment phase. Exercises for lordosis are often prescribed as a means of adjunctive treatment to wearing the SpineCor® brace and to chiropractic postural Remodeling care as the three are complementary.
When the lordosis is too severe or continues to deteriorate, we suggest that the patient wear an orthopaedic brace.
While there are many types of braces that may be used to treat lordosis—most of which are made of rigid plastic—the SpineCor brace, which is not really a brace at all, but rather a system for dynamic rehabilitation using elastic bands, has for several years now presented itself as a leading alternative for the treatment of various postural problems.
