Background: Lumbar lordosis is an essential postural element that has gained the interest of both clinicians and researchers for several years. It is the inward curvature made by the wedging of the vertebrae of the lumbar spine. Since there is paucity of data on the lumbar lordosis in the Lebanese population, most of the data used in clinical practice to classify hypo- and hyper-lordosis are based on studies from other races. Aim: To identify the normal LSA in a Lebanese population, then see…

Measurement of Lumbosacral Angle in Normal Radiographs: A Retrospective Study in Southeast Nigeria

The normal lordosis is established and the possible values at which to consider hypo-lordosis (below 15°), and hyper-Lordosis (above 75°) in the authors' population are established.

Radiographic analysis of the lumbar and sacral region angles in young Turkish adults.

Values identified can be considered as reference values for young healthy Turkish adults and are likely to improve the prognosis for hip and low back disorders in young healthy adults.

Evaluation of lumbar angles and their clinical correlates in a Nigerian population

Overweight and obesity were associated with increased lumbar angles, and the mean values of these angles may form the reference values for the Nigerian population.

Evaluation of Lumber Lordotic Angle in Patients with Inter Vertebral Disc Prolapse using Cobbs Method

The study concluded that Cobb angle and Disc prolapse levels have no significant relation with job, height, weight, age and BMI, no significant difference was detected between Cobb angle of the normal subjects and patients with prolapsed disc and the results did not differ among male and female patients.

The evaluation of normal radiographic measurements of the lumbar spine in young to middle aged Indian females in Durban

A significant association was found between lumbar lordosis and the height of the subjects in this study and a decrease in the intervertebral disc height at L4-L5 was associated with previous pregnancy.

Evaluating Kyphosis and Lordosis in Students by Using a Flexible Ruler and Their Relationship with Severity and Frequency of Thoracic and Lumbar Pain

Investigation of the relationship between kyphosis and lordosis measured by using a flexible ruler and musculoskeletal pain in students of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences found lumbar lordosis contributes to low back pain.

Lumbar Lordosis Measurement: A New Method Versus Cobb Technique

The tangential radiologic assessment of lumbar lordosis method is more reproducible and more reliable in the lumbr lordotic curve, providing a smaller range of normal values than the Cobb method, and reaches a plateau of approximately 50° at maturity.

Changes in the lumbosacral angle, sacral inclination and the curvature of the lumbar spine during aging.

All three parameters showed a tendency to decrease after the sixth decade, and females had greater angles than males and sacral inclination appeared to be a more important determinant of the degree of lumbar lordosis.
