Slight curve?: Do you mean the slight curve that everybody has, the normal cervical lordosis? Lordosis, kyphosis, scoliosis, "adjustment" is pure chiropractic quackery. In your young healthy neck, everything's held tightly in place by discs, muscles & ligaments. It can't get OUT of adjustment. Be skeptical. Arm yourself with real knowledge. Don't be a sucker for all the pseudoscientific claptrap out there.
