Wyoming’s Leading Providers of Lordosis Treatment
The gentle, S-shaped curve of a healthy spine helps you maintain your balance and remain supple when you move, allowing you to enjoy your favorite activities without pain. However, when the spine curves inward too far—a condition known as lordosis—you may experience weakness, numbness, and muscle pain that reduce your mobility. Instead of letting back pain keep you from the active lifestyle that Wyoming residents love, contact the board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors of Premier Bone & Joint Centers. We can accurately diagnose your lordosis and provide you with a treatment plan that helps improve flexibility and manage pain.
Diagnosing Your Condition
In adults, conditions like arthritis, osteoporosis, and obesity can frequently lead to lordosis. In order to deliver the most beneficial treatment, your physician will first diagnose the cause and extent of your condition by evaluating your medical history and performing a physical examination. During this exam, they will observe:
- Your range of motion
- Your spinal flexibility
- The progression of your condition
One of our orthopedic doctors may also order X-rays or an MRI to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of your condition.
The Best Lordosis Treatment
In most cases, your physician will recommend managing your lordosis with physical therapy to strengthen your muscles and improve your range of motion. This regimen may be supplemented by taking medications to help manage pain and swelling. In more severe cases of lordosis, however, your physician may recommend corrective surgery to prevent damage to the spinal cord. If this is the case for you, you can rest easy knowing that our orthopedic surgeons remain up to date with the most advanced surgical practices and technology.
Don’t let lordosis slow you down. Schedule an appointment with the orthopedic doctors of Premier Bone & Joint Centers today, either at our main office in Laramie, WY, or at one of our convenient satellite clinics.
