I have a small curvature in my lower spine that has developed over the years. I was once told it was a muscle development disparity and that if I strengthened my core it would correct itself over time. I did as instructed, but it only helped a little over time.

I use to be able to do the butterfly and touch my nose to my toes. I also used to be able to sit and spread my legs and bend forward and touch the ground in front of me, but my spine feels like it's locked when I try to bend forward now. Other than that everything works fine.

I've been told by friend that this could be caused from having a low-hanging backback. Now I've always worn mine low and usually with a lot of weight so this would make sense. Can I simply correct this by wearing the backback higher up or will it take something else more drastic?
