hey guys

i just had xrays done. in one xray that they take from the front of the neck looks really wierd. my neck is leaning to the left??? could this be from muscle tension?? my left muscles are really tense.

any reply would be great.


  • It could be muscle tension or it could just be how you are.

    I never knew mine tilted to the right until I went to the Chiropractor and did X-rays.

    I had a fusion in July 05 and it still tilts some but it does look better.

    These things don't usually show up on a MRI.

  • I think I have a permanent tilt to the right. I've even noticed that I've become aware that my head leans to the right constantly but it doesn't show anything like that on X Ray. So hmmm.... Maybe I'll look closer at my X Rays with my doc on Wed.

  • Mine isn't so much the head but the neck tilts. It is very obvious on X-ray.
  • my neck tilt to the left is very noticeable. looks funny. i think it is muscle tension too. hopefully that is all it is. i see NS on thursday. will report back to u guys!!
