Lathe Height Question?

Barry Irby
>I have my lathe setup so the shaft is at about the height of my forearm if I hold it level. Does that make sense? How about elbow high?

I have a chronic snarled muscle in my back sort of between my shoulder blade and back bone.

I was wondering if the two things are related? I turn mostly bowls and vessels. Would it be better if the lathe was higher or lower?
