Introduction:

Hyperlordosis can cause several degenerative spinal pathologies in children and adolescents.

Objective:

Determine whether body mass index, age and sexual maturation predict the occurrence of hyperlordosis in children and adolescents.

Method:

The study analyzed 380 students aged between 10 and 18 years. Body mass index was evaluated using the reference values suggested by the Fitnessgram test battery, and sexual maturation through Tanner’s scale of self-assessed pubic hair growth. Postural assessment was conducted using the DIPA photogrammetry method, version 3.1. (Digital Image Based Postural Assessment) The SPSS 24.0 program was used to analyze the data, and the following statistical tests were applied: chi-squared, Mann-Whitney, Fisher’s exact and binary logistic regression.

Results:

There was statistical significance between hyperlordosis, girls’ age and puberty in boys (p <0.05). The adjusted binary logistic regression for the girls (OR = 0.656) indicated that this disorder declined by 34% with advancing age and for stage P2 of puberty in boys (OR = 4.292), and the likelihood of boys’ presenting with hyperlordosis at this stage is approximately 4-fold higher. There was no statistical significance between body mass index and hyperlordosis (p> 0.05).

Conclusion:

The girls’ age and boys’ stage of puberty were associated with the occurrence of hyperlordosis.
