Dr. Andrew Timbs saw this person presented with neck pain and headaches. They get occasional lower back pain and ache but that is not their major issues at the moment.

They actually have a large fracture of their L5 vertebra (bottom bone of your spine) called a spondylolisthesis. This is not uncommon about 8% of the population have one. This is large and you can see the L5 vertebra has actually slipped over half way down the sacrum.

Don’t really on how you feel and what you cannot see you cannot know.

It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
