    There is a natural lordosis you should have in your lower back (lumbar spine). Is your excessive, or you don't have one (flat back)?? Not clear from your question.

        A lot of times excessive lordosis is caused my tight hip flexors, which also tilts your pelvis anteriorly, so stretching those can help.
        Here is a good explanation of what could be causing the lordosis. It was just a quick google search so I'm sure there is better out there. I didn't even look at the exercises because they are geared towards the able bodied.
