I have a client who is kyphotic as well as slightly swayback whose physical therapist has prescribed roman chair back extensions. Personally, I think those exercises are for advanced exercisers and as a pilates instructor as well as personal trainer, I’m sure my client is more likely to end up with low back pain. Any comments?
swayback is an anterior displacement of the hip with a posterior tilt, lordosis is a anterior pelvis tilt. If you are indeed talking about swayback then it is safe, if you are talking about lumbar lordosis then I would have to say build up to that movement by first loosening the hip flexors activating the intrinsic core and get the glutes firing.
