    Hi all. Went for an X ray today. It shows that i got this lower back injury, probably because i was too zealous with dead lifting. Have learnt my lesson. Anyway, I would like to know if this is curable, and how should i go about curing it? I am considering surgery.

    Thanks.

    The spine isn't supposed to be straight. It's supposed to have a natural curve to it. Nothing too extreme. If you're worried about it, then go to a chiropractor. If you get a good one he might be able to help.

    A sign of a good chiropractor is that he won't sell you his service as a cure all for all your problems.

    Chiropractors are great for stuff like that. If you want more a more traditional medical approach go see a spinal specialist. Most spine guys are neuro or orthopedic surgeons with an addition 1-2 year spine fellowship.... last time I checked most of us here don't have these qualifications, so its probably not the best place to ask something like this.
