As promised on an earlier post I will discuss the all important curve in your neck (cervical lordosis). This may very well be the most important curve in the human body. As it pertains to function this curve is a must have.
The film on the left side of the image demonstrates what a loss of curve can look like, while the opposite is normal. With a normal curve all motions of the head and neck are easier and pain free.
The image on the left demonstrates a straitening of the curve and would accompany in most: headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain and tingling/numbness in the hands. With a loss of curvature there is even added tension on the spinal cord leading to a number of neurological symptoms.
If you have ever been diagnosed with this condition please let us know as your story can be inspiring to others.
