Can reverse cervical spine be treated??

had numbness, tingling and pain on my right hand and arm. So my neurologist ordered an mri on cervical spine. And the results shows that I have conspicuous reverse cervical spine that the doctor does not think caused by positioning only. About six months ago, I was on an airplane and dozed off too hard. I think I had whiplash injury at that time since my pain and all the symptoms started at that time. Whatsoever, I just want to know if this reverse cervical spind can be treated and go back to its original shape. Is there anybody here who had injury or reverse cervical was able to get their original cervical shape through physical therapy or exercise??

Re: Can reverse cervical spine be treated??

Do you have a copy of the MRI report? Did the doctor mention anything pressing into the spinal cord? Is there any nerve impingement? If not, your best bet might be to find a good chiropractor.

Loss of the lordotic curve in the cervical spine can be caused by posture and by tight ligaments, muscles and soft tissue. I think it could be caused by the airplane experience. Ligaments can get stretched when one falls asleep in an awkward position.

It is better to tackle this now with exercises, PT, etc. as it can lead to issues with structural alignment, and cause damage to discs, joints, etc. down the road.

Acupuncture might help as well.
