extended [position] or elongated [position]
Explanation:
strecken = extend, elongate
[Reuter, WB Medizin]

As the following indicates, this extension or elongation of the lumbar spine is pathological in nature.

· Diese neue Beckenstellung führt zu einer Formveränderung der Wirbelsäule mit einem Ausgleich der Lendenlordose und damit einer Vorverlagerung des Körperschwerpunktes vor die Körperachse, die den Patienten zunehmend in die typische Fehlform drängt: also Streckstellung der LWS, Zunahme der Brustkyphose (Wirbelsäulenverbiegung nach vorne), kompensatorische Zunahme der HWS-Lordose (Wirbelsäulenverbiegung nach hinten).

See also the following URL which contains a list of rather descriptive synomyms for Bechterew's disease, among them "bamboo spine" (which somehow reminded me of Stufenbildung)

Anyway, I hope this helps.
