When you are experiencing muscles spasms in your neck or if you have a poor posture, the normal "curve" in your neck will straighten out.

Could straightening of the cervical lordosis and anterolesthesis be associated with ehlers-danlos syndrome?
Hello. I had an MRI scan - the letter says it shows straightening of the cervical lordosis, and multi level degenerative changes associated with narro?
Not much: So this does depend a bit on your age but the straining means just that when the image was taken your neck was strait and this could be due to many mostly benign things. The degenerative findings are like arthritis but not necessarily a big deal and clinical application would depend on why the scan was done. Narrowing of the canal? can cause pain but that was the end of your answer.... ...Read more

Lordosis: Normally the neck area, or cervical spine, has a curve where the middle part bends out toward the front of the body. The xray here shows a loss of some of that normal curve. Losing this curve can be caused by many things including poor posture, neck muscle strain or osteoporosis. The most common cause is muscle strain often from bending over a computer. A chiropractor can help correct this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Straightening of the lumbar curve can occur if your xrays are done lying down so you need to consider how they were done. Straightening may be temporary from muscle spasm. If there is concern about "sagittal imbalance" or other structural abnormality of the spine, you would have to get standard scoliosis series to look at all segments of the spine while standing. ...Read more
