Re: Loss of cervical lordosis

What a "loss of cervical lordosis" means is that your neck is getting straighter instead of having a nice curve in toward your throat. That is normal with age....it happens to everyone. It may make your neck hurt and you may have trouble holding your head up. About all you can do is exercise your neck and shoulder muscles to help hold up your head but if the bones have shifted, you really can't do much for it. It is natural with aging.

If it is causing neurological problem with your arms or legs, then the doctors can do surgery to relieve pressure on the nerves but otherwise, they don't fix that straightening.
