    I am a disable veteran with a lower back injury and now deal with lordosis. How important is the Cobb Angle? I feel that the VA is minimizing the severity of my issue.

    The term “lordosis” is a term indicating a backwards curve of the spine. The lumbar spine is naturally in lordosis with a curve of typically 60 degrees plus or minus 20 degrees (measured by the Cobb angle). Your pain is most likely not from “lordosis” but from degenerative changes in your lumbar spine. See:
