Have you ever thought about your cervical curve and why it’s shaped the way it is? Well, it turns out that the cervical curve plays a very important role in the overall health of your spine. The inward curve of the neck is referred to as cervical lordosis, and it changes for any reason it can affect the spine. So we’re going to take a look at how to know if you have an abnormal cervical lordosis.
Normal cervical lordosis
The spine has natural curves that help to keep it healthy and supple. The curve of the cervical spine is known as a lordotic curve, which means that it bends into the body. Preserving this curve is important, as it assists the neck with its weight-bearing function.
Abnormal cervical lordosis
Abnormal cervical lordosis is characterized by a flattening of the natural curve of the cervical spine. When this happens the curve does not bend inward as much as it should, and in more severe cases the curve starts to bend in the opposite direction. This can lead to a myriad of spinal concerns including neck and back pain. If you are suffering from chronic neck pain, it’simportant to have an evaluation done, to find out if it’s due to changes in the normal cervical lordosis.
Physical therapy is widely recommended for abnormal cervical lordosis, as it can help to regain proper posture. Another effective option involves the use of Posture Pump products that are specially designed to rehydrate the cervical spine, and restore the natural curve.
Posture Pump uses patented decompression therapy known as Ellipsoidal Decompression (EED) to treat the neck. EED uses elliptical shaped air cells to decompress the cervical spine.
