In brief: No
You are meant to have a natural curve in the neck and back for maximum movement and flexibility.
These are not curves you want to get rid of as they are god given and necessary. Standing straight actually makes you taller (not rigid straight) . Head up eyes forward shoulders back (not too far) increases height and actually helps reduce pain( in people with pain).
