I know a lot about the lumbar spine, the low back. I think there’s no question I couldn’t answer about the spine, especially the lumbar spine. There are 5 lumbar vertebrae. When looked at from the side the lumbar spine is concave. This is called lordosis. If your low back doesn’t go in a little bit, you’ll probably have some low back pain. Mine doesn’t. My low back is what is called a “flat back” and has no curve to it. HOWEVER, I’m obsessive about my posture so that keeps the back pain away. Also, if your spine is really inflexible you’ll probably have pain. A healthy spine is a flexible spine. The way that I used to treat back pain seems really weird to most people, but it’s insanely effective. I used to make all of my patients with low back pain read this book. POSTURE!!!! I just wanted to say posture.
