A “straight neck” neck has been said to be a curve of 25º or less.

This is know a HYPO-lordosis of the cervical spine.

So a NORMAL neck curve should measures anywhere between 30º and 40º, which looks like a continuous “C” shape curve on your X-ray.

“Normal” also depends on what research paper you read!
One criteria for establishing a “normal range”, is a range where people don’t experience symptoms, like the above-mentioned.

What we also see very commonly with a reduced neck curve is what is called “Anterior Head Syndrome“.
That is when your head gets stuck forward to your shoulders.

This type of posture you may notice in photos of yourself or when looking in front of the mirror.
You may have also notice the development of a ‘hump’ forming on the back of your neck!


From your history and findings we may want to assess your spinal shape. If that’s the case we can refer you out for a special type of X-ray called an EOS scan.
This is a low dose, full spine, standing X-ray.
We use specific software designed by surgeons to accurately measure your spinal structure – including your neck curve!
