Symptoms for hyper-lordosis
Repeat Lumbago’s (lower back pain), especially in the lower back muscles, pain in the lumber – sacrum area and muscular pain in the crest iliac.

The patient lies face down and pressure applied to the lumber area, first with the palm of the hand. If the pain is manageable an osteopath may test the area again applying pressure with his or her fingers adding the lower thoracic area into the test to gauge the severity of the problem.
