Don’t laugh! It’s not funny even though it sounds really funny!
A crooked butt crack, or crooked gluteal cleft, is not uncommon and could be the sign of a potentially serious problem. According to Dr. Barbara, “it’s probably the sign of a torqued pelvis, could also be a sign of scoliosis, or a short leg.” YIKES! Either way, it’s the sign of a dysfunction and if you read my post The anklebone is connected to the knee bone, you know that everything is connected. If your pelvis is torqued, sooner or later that will effect your back, knees and ankles. Not a good thing in general and certainly not if you plan to stay active and perhaps live a healthy, “physically comfortable” life.
So… drop your drawers and have a look in the mirror. If you’re crooked, at the very least have your posture assessed by a professional, or like Dr. Barbara suggests get an x-ray to decipher the culprit. You gotta read the signs if you want to keep it together as you age. Don’t let this message slip through the crack (Ha!).
Tomorrow maybe I’ll talk about asparagus, something a little less dramatic. Maybe not, depends on my mood.
Wake up! It’s Monday!

Actually its not crooked like the picture but the crack bends to the right going around past the tail bone, so the the crack is going up to wards the right, crooked but not as bad a a curve like the picture but the crack goes beyond the tailbone… :l
