Talk:Lumbar hyperlordosis

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The treatment proposed is very different from the Lordosis page. There it is argued that abdominals and back extensors do not move the hips, here it is suggested to train the former and stretch the latter. Also, it is suggested to stretch the hamstrings, which in the other article are said to be already too long. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:47, 28 May 2013 (UTC)


Is there a reason this is separate from the existing Lordosis page? If so, it's not clear in the text of this article. THF (talk) 17:49, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

It should stay seperately in my opinion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:53, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Absolutely. Lordosis and Hyperlordosis are two completely different subjects. While Lordosis is common to all, Hyperlordosis is not and is a serious medical issue for many (of us - especially those with genetic diseases that are not common to the general population). It also can be a very serious medical issue in which a doctor needs to be seen, and for some, when the condition is extreme, can even lead to death when coupled with other conditions that involve an extensive 'inward' curvature of the spine (as is this) - that can drastically effect breathing, etc.

The one problem that I personally have with this wiki, is that it is aimed specifically toward 'dancers' alone. As I have noted in the wiki, there are certainly are other cases in which it exists. Myself, also having been effected. Would be nice if mention **and link** were made in the original article on (normal) Lordosis, though (talk) 18:17, 20 May 2010 (UTC)Gem615


It's extremly misleading to say it is mainly something that happens to dancers... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:54, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Seconded. This article has no right to exist in its current state, and this sort of egocentric drivel is a detriment to the professionalism of Wikipedia as a collective. This article should be deleted. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:47, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

This article really sucks — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:38, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

Proposal to add definition of scope and refine language[edit]

Though I appreciate the author's efforts, this article's language needs improvement. This is especially pertinent since there is a request for links from other medical-type articles. Furthermore, the article does not clearly define its scope, that is, lumbar hyperlordosis issues specific to dancers. This clarification is needed since hyperlordosis affects a large portion of the population, and is not specific to dancers. Awesomeannay (talk) 04:07, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
