Can muscle spasm in upper back/neck cause a temporary spinal curvature? Will the curve straighten out once the spasm stop?

In brief: Yes

Hi Charles That is a great question.
Depending on the degree of the musculoskeletal spasm, there certainly can be a curvature that develops. There are many ways to alleviate a spasm. Some alleviators are rest, stretches, heat, anti-inflammatory medication, and muscle relaxant medication.
