Lumbar lordosis

This has been an ongoing issue which I didn't realise until I saw a picture on YouTube of a guy who had a similar curvature in his spine. Upon realising I have a posture problem, I was wondering how it can be corrected? Also would it increase your height by straightening your posture? Thank you :)

I doubt that my improving your lordosis you could significantly improve your height.

A lordosis in the lumbar spine is normal. Everyone has one unless they've had serious injury. An INCREASED lordosis leads to increase pressure on the facet joints which become painful, and will start to wear prematurely.

Best start with a gentle faithfully-done exercise programme, gradually building up.
