Reversed Cervical, Pinched nerves C5-C7


For the past 10 days I have been having back pain and pain in my left arm. In the past 3 days it has worsened, and I cannot fully lift my head. I am experiencing sporadic pain in my complete left arm from shoulder to hand.

Today I went to chiro and she said i have a reversed cervical that is casuing this pain. I have pinched nerves in the C5-C7 area, causing the issues. she says she can have me pain free by next week. She wants to see me 20 times over the next 2 months for $640 if a pay up front, or $40/visit ($800) if i pay by the visit.

Any one have any experience like this?

    hello fernram1,
    Not sure what reversed cervical is but I'm thinking it may be like kyphosis or the opposite curve of a normal cervical spine which is lordosis. I did have kyphosis caused by degeneration of the c-spine of C4 thru C7. After a major rebuild of that area 6 years ago the curvature of my spine has never looked better.
    But I'd get another opinion or two from an orthopedic spine specialist and/or a neurosurgeon and weigh the results.
