My grandmother also was born with this condition.
I really havent had any problems until recently (if I stand straight for a period of time). If I lean forward, I am fine.
I just would like to read a bit on this condition. If anyone knows any resources I would be greatful. Either European, Asian, ect. outside sources other than standard US fare would be fantastic.
Im not sure what you are saying here,, are you saying your lumbar spine is fused? Or they arent completely formed? Such as in Spina Bifida Occulta?
Lumbar spine has only 5 segments not 7. Are you talking Lumbar and Sacral?

If there is a name for this condition, you might be able to "google" it.
If you can find a copy of this book @ a library, you might be able to find some more info; if your local library doesn't have a copy, they may be able to borrow it from another one.
Also, I assume you have a doc who knows about this condition; consult w/him or her.
I wish you the best!
