Secondary Curvatures of the Spine?

Answer

The secondary curvatures of the spine do not develop until after you are born. The secondary curvatures are made up of the lumbar curve and the cervical curve. When a baby gains the ability to hold his or her head up the cervical curve starts to develop. The lumbar curve does not develop until he or she starts to sit up without assistance and walk. These curves occur because the body has to readjust to carry the weight of the body.
