For the past two years, I have experienced lower back pain coupled with what I think to be an abnormal inward curvature of my spine. I recently went to a pediatrician and the doctor brushed it off saying there is nothing wrong with my spine. No one believes me even though I have showed them and complained about the pain. I have looked online and found what I think to be the problem (lumbar lordosis or anterior pelvic tilt). My back causes me a great deal of pain and embarrass me by making my butt stick out. Please help.

Things to remember: Do the Cobra Stretch as mentioned above before and after workout and also as the last thing in the night, just before going to bed.
