Hello mamacook,

This is a very interesting question. Spinal abnormalities are seen in about 10% of adults. Generally these extra vertebrae are seen in the lower back and do not cause low back pain. Sometimes, there can be a bony protrusion near the vertebrae that is attached to the sacrum. It creates a rudimentary joint. The resulting motion can cause localized low back pain. An injection of steroid medication at this area can help relieve the pain.
