Mri of my neck shows straightening of the curvature after having muscle spasms and nerve injury. I have headaches everyday. Does this cause it?

Herniated disc: You are relatively young for severe arthritis although possible. Sounds like you have a herniated cervical disc. If causing persistant pain and numbness you probably need to seek the attention of an ortho doc or pain management specialist.

I was told by a neurosurgeon that my neck bone shows aging. I am 21 years of age. What does this mean? Can I reverse it?

I was told by a neurosurgeon that my neck bone shows aging. I am 21 years of age. What does this mean? Can I reverse it?

Aging bones: When bones show "aging" it means that the effect of gradual wear and tear that we all experience is starting to show up as mild degenerative arthritis in your spine or limbs. While this is unusual at age 21, it certainly can happen, particularly if you have had a major fall, car accident, etc. The only thing you can do that will help is regular exercise with stretching. Check another xray in 5 yrs. ...Read more

What treatments should I get for moderate scoliosis and a reverse neck curve?

What treatments should I get for moderate scoliosis and a reverse neck curve?

Varies: Usually a curve that is described as moderate is less than 45 degrees, those curves do not typically progress when a patient is done growing.
