Dear friend, welcome to HCM.
normally, the spine in the neck is curved concave facing forward. with degenerative changes (wear and tear ) in the spine and mild slipped discs at C2 to C7, the normal curvature is lost and the spine is straightened up. the neck and thoracic junction is unremarkable.
these are usually age related changes. how old are you?
do you have neck pain or movement restriction?
pl. see your doctor for further evaluation and physical examination.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck !
