Lordosis refers to increased posterior concavity of the lumbar and cervical curves. A normal spine, when viewed from behind appears straight. However, a spine affected by Lordosis shows evidence of a curvature of the back bones (vertebrae) in the lower back area, giving the child a "swayback" appearance.
