What is a Reverse Cervical Curve and How Does it Affect Your Health?

Patient getting adjustmentChiropractors treat many conditions resulting from consistently poor posture, including a reverse cervical curve. While there are natural curves throughout the neck and the spinal system that develop throughout childhood, sometimes people lose this curvature as they get older. Although this is often linked to the natural aging process, it can also be accelerated by slouched postures. In some cases, people are born with a reversed curve.

It’s important to have an intact cervical curve to support healthy spinal motion. A healthy cervical lordosis is when the concave side faces backward. If a reverse cervical curve is not corrected, the spine will struggle to function properly, and neck pain will likely persist as the spine needs to compensate for the reversed curve. Chiropractic treatments can help to minimize pain and proactively address a reverse cervical curve before it leads to further issues, including vertigo, dizziness, disc bulges, herniations, arthritis, and spinal degeneration.
