Researchers found that participants in these studies encountered lower back pain when the curve of the lower back was shortened (lordosis). Similarly, thoracic spine osteoporotic compression fractures were mildly associated with kyphosis. In three of the studies that researchers looked at, kyphosis is also moderately associated with uterine prolapse, intense household activities and even death. It is also important to note that there was no correlation between many of these studies and spinal curves and health conditions.Do you want to learn more?

In order to determine whether curves influence overall health, further research needs to be carried out on spinal curves.
One of the single best investments you can make in yourself is strengthening and preserving the health of your spine. In addition to preserving and maintaining the correct operation of your nervous system (nerves), your spine also helps you to travel from your neck down to your lower back. Anyone who has ever had their ‘go out’ back will inform you easily that the movement they once took for granted on a regular basis is reduced in a flash by almost none. The spine is simply a stack of several spinal bones (one on top of the other) extending from the base of your skull to the bottom of your rear, or what many people refer to as their ‘backbone.’ There is a cartilage-based disk between each spinal bone that not only divides the spinal bones so that they do not jam into each other while bending and twisting, but also serves as a shock absorber that helps you to walk, run and jump without damaging the spinal bones.
How are the curves shaped?
If you look from the side at a typical human spine, you can see basically a ‘S’ shaped structure with four different curves… At the mid back and tail bone regions, a forward curve in the neck and low back and curves that bow out towards the back.
