Shower gooseneck turned

I just put on a new showerhead. In the process, I used too much force when tightening the showerhead on the gooseneck pipe. The goosenect pipe turned a little, and I turned it back. The showerhead is ok but now my concern is if there is going to be a leak inside the drywall where the gooseneck connect to the water pipe since it turned a little, maybe an eighth of a turn. Should I be worried? Is the connection inside the drywall forgiving enough for slight turns?

Its probably OK. Pull the trim plate away from the drywall, turn on the shower and shine a light on the shower arm where it connects to the shower riser. Look for a drip.

Shower gooseneck turned

Thanks for the prompt reply. I did pull the trim plate expecting to see a hole thru the drywall but the drywallers made it so perfect, there is no excess hole. I may have to cut a hole around it to see any drip.

I just don't have any idea how the gooseneck connects to the riser.

I'll live with it. In any case, when I turn the shower knob off, there should be no leakage. Or like you said, it's probably ok.
