I did some digging on webMd.com b/c of pain I have in my lower back. Around my lumbar region, the spine does appear to bulge more than normal... not a lot, but enough to make me wonder (this is no new discovery; it's been a while).
My understanding tells me this could easily be caused by lack of muscle support, in addition to slouching, which I don't do... but as a quad it's almost inherent that sitting for full days on end can't produce anything good.
Doctors are dumb & I'm not going to try for another eval. I've seen several about my back, gotten a MRI done, and they all seem clueless to SCI & just assume that due to my injury there's nothing to do & it's normal. (tangent: It's ridiculous how much they get paid too. One visit to a clinic cost $156, most of which was covered by insurance... but still, I saw a doc for all of 10 min.)
But it hurts. Every day. I get on with life just "fine," but I'm wondering if I'm the only one or if this is (or can be) fairly common. FWIW, I'm c6/7, sensory incomplete.
