I have scoliosis which causes some interesting back problems... I had a bike with a short elevated stem, that just absoloutely killed me, so I went to a shop, got measured and totally refitted for my bike (which I bought at a different store that wouldn't take the time) I was given a more traditional stem (flat and out) Its taken some time for my arms and abs to adjust to my weight being forward more (I now have a more traditional racing position) but it has all but cured the discomfort I had in my lower back...
