Effects of Pain, Disability and Cervicokinesthesia After Cervical Manipulation

2016-01-06 10:38:24 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Cervical spine manipulation has been found to be effective in patients with mechanical neck pain. Discrepancies exist on the side of manipulation and the placebo effect of this manual intervention. In addition, some authors have proposed that spinal manipulation can alter proprioception of the cervical spine. The aim of this study will be to investigate the effects of cervical spine manipulation on pain, disability, widespread pressure pain sensitivity, and cervicokinethesia in patients with mechanical neck pain.

Description

Cervical spine manipulation has been found to be effective in patients with mechanical neck pain. Discrepancies exist on the side of manipulation and the placebo effect of this manual intervention. In addition, some authors have proposed that spinal manipulation can alter proprioception of the cervical spine. The aim of this study will be to investigate the effects of cervical spine manipulation on pain, disability and cervicokinethesia in patients with mechanical neck pain. Patients will receive cervical spine manipulation in either right or left side of the neck and will be assessed on pain intensity, neck-related disability, widespread pressure pain sensitivity, and cervicokinethesia by an assessor blinded to the allocation group.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.

The first cervical vertebra.

Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.

The segment of the spinal cord within the CERVICAL VERTEBRAE.
