Any tips on reducing over-exaggerated *lower* back curvature (which apparently is called lordosis)?
The Wikipedia article for lordosis says stop slouching.
Quote
Lower spine disorders occur when lumbar lordosis is excessive (lumbar hyperlordosis), minimal, or reversed into lumbar kyphosis. Lumbar hyperlordosis is commonly called hollow back or saddle back (after a similar condition that affects some horses). These conditions are usually a result of poor posture and can often be reversed by learning correct posture and using appropriate exercises.
The wikipedia article says there are exercises I should learn.  :P
Let me know how that works out. :laugh:
Hey, it helped the upper back!

"Stop slouching" isn't actually helpful when I don't even know what good posture looks or feels like on me, by the way.  (There is no way I'm the only dyspraxic person on here.)
it is well known that PMS Elle is evil.
I think you'd fit in a 12" or at least a 16" firework mortar
You win this thread because that's most unsettling to even think about.

It's just playful harassment because you wont try force, and it's been a couple of years now noticing this topic.

Have at least twice suggested a posture correcting strap, or at least seeking a medical opinion about the use of one.

The exercise I was told to do (and which worked) was this:

Lean your back against a wall with your feet out on the floor (preferably carpet so you don't slip) at an angle that's comfortable for you. Then pull your stomach in so that you can feel your lower back touching the wall. Then release. Do this exercise for as many times as you feel it's ok, don't hurt yourself!

And I've replied that I don't think wearing something that'll pull at my shoulders is a good idea considering I'm putting constant strain on my rotator cuffs by rock climbing and doing stuff like this:

Also:  Anyone have any thoughts/research/experience with using apple cider vinegar to lower general inflammation (or similar, non-med, simple stuff)?

No worries, I hope it helps. I found that it made my lower back a bit stronger. Also my stomach muscles.

So, how different are those exercises than twerking?

Twerking doesn't involve a wall.

Had to look up "twerking".
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.
