Cervical spine pain can present in many forms, but in some cases it will include an acute mechanical deformity. The most common acute spinal mechanical deformity is a torticollis; this condition often first presents with an acute kyphotic deformity, or a fixed flexed position of the lower cervical spine. Left untreated, this painful condition can progress into a torticollis and will often present with radicular symptoms that may require surgical intervention.
