You can see what I mean if you look at the picture of the xray on the right hand side of our home page.
A reversed cervical curve means that your neck is either straight or curved backwards when it should normally be curved frontwards at a 42 degree angle.
If your neck is straight or curved backwards, this is going to stretch the spinal cord in your neck.
And just like when you stretch an elastic, the more you pull on it the thinner it gets.
But just imagine if this is happening to your spinal cord?
The thinner your spinal cord gets, the less ability it has to transmit your vital nerve energy that goes from your brain, through the spinal cord in your neck to every single part of your body.
Remember that the spinal cord in your neck is a bundle of every single nerve fibre in your body.
And for all these nerves to be relaxed so that they can freely transmit your nerve energy at full capacity, you must have a 42 degree curve in your neck in the frontwards direction.
Next time, we will discuss how you get a straight neck or a neck with a backwards curve, but in the meantime if you have any questions about this topic or any other health concerns that you may have, all you have to do is shoot us an email or give us a call at 905 335 5433.
Remember that consultations are always free of charge and family appointments are always available because spinal problems tend to run in families. And the sooner we can get at them, the better the correction we can achieve.
