    Thanks, Linda! :) I'm not aware of wedging, but my shoulders aren't nearly as off (less than an inch, probably).

    Maybe we can get a discount if we pool together and get some new spines printed up? I thought ink cartridges were overpriced, but I am sure this takes the cake!

    Me, too, actually- I was looking for alliteration over locations - but I am flexible. ;)

    I'm curious, has anyone else found other good cardio options?

    Thank you once again! I had tried in my own way (photoshop over the x-ray) to try and get some sense of the angles, and my best guess was 30 and 20 degrees. It's helpful to have all of you compare...

    I tend to describe it as intense fatigue and soreness, though if I've had a long day and/or had to lift more than I'd prefer it blends more into the realm of pain.

    Hi Linda!

    When you say double major curve, does that mean you'd say the lumbar curve was not so much a compensating curve... possibly structural?

    The X-ray was from the front.

    I didn't know that, but I can see how the lumbar could be more of a reaction or compensation for the other curve. And, that would conceivably halve my challenge!
