Symptoms Of Lordosis?
If I lie flat and flat, there is a gap under my back, even my fingers and palms can go in there. My friend who was originally shorter than me, now taller. Even though I have added height.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Lordosis is a condition in which the spine is bent inward excessively, causing a person's posture to look abnormal, as shown in the image below.
But according to our observations, what you experience is not lordosis, at least not if based on the information you convey.
Because lordosis's main complaint is back pain, not slowing or improper height gain. The pain arises because the body tries to be in an uncomfortable position and causes muscle fatigue, injury, to the point of pain. In addition, other symptoms that can arise in the condition of lordosis are limited movement, buttocks appear prominent, the body feels weak, numbness, tingling, to lack of control of urination and defecation.
Meanwhile, if your benchmark is the height of your friend who used to be shorter than you, it could be that his growth was initially slow, and only quite rapidly in his current age. Many people are like that, where he was classified as short when elementary, middle and high school, then suddenly grew quite high dramatically when in college. This is natural, and is only a variation of one's growth. Another possibility, he could be genetically high, or without you know, he made efforts to optimize height gain such as swimming, jumping rope, increasing protein and calcium consumption, and avoiding stress and staying up late. So this indeed cannot be used as a benchmark.
Finally, the diagnosis of lordosis is also not made by inserting fingers and palms on the back, because besides normal people (especially thin people) do have a small gap in the area, if you put your own hand there may be an effort to lift the body that you are not aware of. That is why, the diagnosis of lordosis is made by a doctor by X-ray examination, CT scan or MRI.
So in conclusion, from your story, you don't necessarily experience a certain disorder if your reason is that your friend's growth is faster than you. This can happen in normal conditions. But even if there are abnormalities, most likely not lordosis. If you are in doubt, or still feel that there are certain symptoms of the disorder that you are feeling other than what you have said, you can confirm it by checking yourself with your orthopedic doctor. Thus, certain examinations can be done, and if there are indeed abnormalities in yourself, it will definitely be easier to detect and handle. So, hopefully answering your question.
