Absolutely not: Having a "sixth" lumbar vertebrae carries no increased risk of back problems at all, nor do you have be careful. There are normally 12 thoracic vertebrae, each with an attached set of ribs; 5 lumbar which then end on a solid fused part of the spine known as the sacrum. If there is one less pair of ribs or one extra motion segment in the sacrum, it is called by some as having "6" lumbar vertebra. ...Read more

Depends: Depends on the location of the "hip." the term "hip" is often not specifically localizing, even for physicians. If pain in in the groin, actual hip joint may be involved.

Could shoe sole replacements cause hip joint pain?

Shoe Inserts and Hip: Subtle changes in shoes, insoles and orthotic devices can cause and help problems up the leg. If you simply switched an old shoe insert with a new insert, that alone probably did not cause the problem.
