Straightening Of The Cervical
See below: Lordosis refers to the natural curve in your neck. You can see this when you get a lateral x-ray of your neck. 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. You essentially "lose" or "straighten" the cervical lordosis. ...Read more
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

The straightening indicates muscle spasm suggest physical therapy for the neck, judicious use of anti-inflammatory and pain medications and careful attention to posture and trauma avoidance. If symptoms persist you should see a rheumatologist as this may indicate the presence of inflammatory disease. ...Read more

Hard lump in sub-occipital area, told its bone. Always sore. Previous MRI & CT of neck showed straightening/reversal of cervical lordosis. Same thing?
Unlikely: Many folks have a prominent bony excrescence "bump" along the inferior midline occipital bone.

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 more

Normal? Mild straightening normal cervical lordosis maybe positional. Minimal grade 1 anterolisthesis C3 on C4 and C4 on C5 minimal grade 1 retrolisthesis of C5 on C6. Degenerative change disc ridge complexes C4-5 and C5-6. Dens intact. No fracture.
My X-ray report says "slight reversal of the normal cervical lordosis at C4 and c5" what kind of injury is this? I know it's "straightening"
Not important: Straightening is seen in muscle spasm (stiff neck) which usually resolves in a few days. I see this often in people with minor injuries. However, this is a finding on an x-ray and is meaningless without knowing your symptoms and physical findings. This "slight" change may be a normal finding for you. Also, what one radiologist calls slight, another will call normal. ...Read more

Hi, what are your concerns/specific questions?
These results discribed are disk disease/degenerative changes, there is nothing described to tell of how sever eit is so it is difficult to know what the extent is without seeing the images. The most important thing concerning the MRI is to make sure the finding are consistent with your symptoms in order to tell if it is of any concern. As we age, most of us have the abnormalities as described in your report, but the importance is deciding if this is the cause of your symptoms. This should be done by your doctor.
