An extra vertebrae?

I found out today from a recent KUB that I have 6 lumbarized vertebrae instead of 5. I have suffered from lower back pain most of my adult life. Could this extra vertebrae be the reason or no? If so, are there any treatment options available?

I've encountered a handful of patients with similar "extra" vertebrae. Most never even knew it was there until it was an incidental finding on x-ray. Your LBP may be caused by something else entirely. If you haven't been evaluated by a chiropractor yet, try finding a "Gonstead" practitioner in your area.
