  Hi....well not being a Dr and not knowing ur age or nothing in ur medical history....all I can say is u deff need to go back to the Dr to get more info.

U have loss of the cervical lordosis, this can occur from a fall or a MVA, so muscles twisting can pull it out of shape, ur Dr may suggest PT to help with this part, but b4 u start he/she would have to address the other issues as well.

U did not mention the type of pain or issues u r having as a result of ur back being in this condition....do u have a lot of pain?

I'm 42 and healthy . Most of my pain is in my arms when I'm  lifting  above my shoulders. I do have lower back problems. The Doctor seems to be more worried about this problem
