(Say this to the tune of 5 little monkeys)
One little girl lifting heavy weights over her head,
did it wrong now her back is dead.
She went to the chiropractor and the chiropractor said,
"You're sacrum, which is a triangular bone in the lower part of your back has shifted down and to the left side of your back. You need to do more stretches and come and see me again on Friday so you can spend 25 dollars for me to pop your back."
Okay so he didn't say ALL of that, but it's implied.
But the first part is really true.
For those of you who don't know what the sacrum is or looks like (i didn't) here is an image.
And here is a brief description of the sacrum thanks to wikepedia. "In vertebrate anatomy the sacrum (plural: sacrums or sacra) is a large, triangular bone at the base of the spine and at the upper and back part of the pelvic cavity, where it is inserted like a wedge between the two hip bones. Its upper part connects with the last lumbar vertebra, and bottom part with the coccyx (tailbone). It consists of usually five initially unfused vertebrae which begin to fuse between ages 16–18 and are usually completely fused into a single bone by age 26."
I have a feeling my bones will never fuse together and that I'm going to need a walker by the time I'm 30.
I can't wait!

bleh! that just made my cringe and shudder at the same time. I hope the $25 bucks will bring you back to new in no time!
