Low Back Pain (LBP) is multifactorial and often challenging for definitive diagnosis and successful treatment. Transitional vertebra (sacralization of lumbar vertebra or lumbarization of sacral vertebra) also known as Bertolotti’s syndrome is an important etiological factor in LBP. The symptoms are not uniform and therefore the treatment is mostly symptomatic. The surgical treatment is the last resort where all other treatments have failed to provide relief.
