This paper discusses the problems caused by L-6 vertebrae and their solutions.
Six lumbar vertebras can occur at any age on anybody. It has no known cure because doctors have not gotten its causative diseases. This means that this abnormality has different effects on people depending on a number of factors. Some of the factors are. age, physical activity that an individual engages in, historical body health among others. Many doctors have suggested that most of the back pains on people with L-6 lumbar vertebra as appearing because of this abnormality. Some of the spinal diseases have been associated with this disorder among the victims (Sellone & Long, 2007). People with complex physical exercise have trouble when they turn to the sides. They may also develop tumors that reduce their efficiency in physical exercise. Old people with this L-6 lumbar vertebra have problems that are more serious because of their inflexible bodies. It is a healthy practice for any human being to have physical exercise to remain fit. However, for old people it is hard for them to remain fit due to lack of exercise or very small exercise if any. Parts of the vertebral column where the L6 lumbar vertebra meets the L5 vertebra also has been reported to develop some diseases due to the friction that may occur sometimes as a result of inadequate cerebrospinal fluid (Weaver & Poloso, 2005). This phenomenon is often seen when the L6 lumbar develops at older ages of life. The logic underlying this phenomenon is that, normal body metabolism enables it to produce just enough cerebrospinal fluid for its normal functioning. Additional joint between L6-L5 lumbar vertebrae calls for extra cerebrospinal fluid. It takes time for the body to adjust to new metabolism. Sometimes it may not adjust at all, imposing serious health problems to the victim (Sellone & Long, 2007). Nevertheless, to some people, this abnormality has no demerits at all.
