Everyone does not have the same spine curvature, and appearance on xrays is affected by patient's position while taking the xray. If you have significant back pain of recent onset, such as a sprain or other injury, it may itself cause muscle spasm and loss of curvature. However if the pain persists even at rest, the back pain may the manifestation of spondlyarthritis especially if other joints are also painful. Family history may also suugest arthritis such as Ankylosing spondylitis. I suggest you see an Orthopedic surgeon right away for evaluation. Chiropractic and physiotherapy may help but should not substitute for proper evaluation.

Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, orthopaedic surgeon from Fortis C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. Your back may be straightened due to muscle spasm which may be caused by weakening of bone. Low levels of vitamin D can weaken the bones. So I would recommend that you get your vitamin D levels done, start physiotherapy for the lower back and get an x ray LS spine AP and lateral views to find the cause of your problem.
