Phase I Arthritis. Typically there is no pain or discomfort. If this goes undetected and untreated, it eventually begins to create rubbing and wearing down of the joints.
It’s Just a Little Arthritis … Right? – Take a look through these neck x-rays. A healthy neck, we should see a gentle smooth forward curve, called the cervical lordosis and even spaces between each bone. Nowadays, what occurs quite frequently is people have a reversed cervical curve, like you see in the middle picture.
Phase II Arthritis: the disc material between the two bones (circled) is losing height! You can now see that the outlined shape of the bones is different.
Phase II Arthritis if undetected and untreated, will often become Phase III Arthritis. In the end phase of bone degeneration you will have permanent change!
It’s not just about the health of your spine! Abnormal posture of the spine such as reversed curvature of the neck or lower back and/or rounding of the mid back affects the spine and the entire body in many ways. Specifically, the lack of spinal motion and constant postural strain on spinal tissue increases the viscosity of spinal fluids (Blood and Cerebrospinal Fluids) and decreases normal flow. As a result, nervous system behaviour and its energy production falter, which can affect the whole body.
