Comparison of Two Spinal Manipulation Treatments in Patients With Chronic Mechanical Neck Pain

2020-02-19 18:28:42 | BioPortfolio


There is enough evidence to suggest that the spinal manipulation of the upper cervical spine and cervicothoracic spine are effective in decreasing neck pain. Therefore, the purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to compare the effects of an isolated application of upper cervical spine thrust joint manipulation with the application of a full combination of cervical, cervico-thoracic and thoracic spine thrust joint manipulation on neck pain, disability and cervical range of motion in individuals with chronic mechanical neck pain.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Discomfort or more intense forms of pain that are localized to the cervical region. This term generally refers to pain in the posterior or lateral regions of the neck.

Adjustment and manipulation of the vertebral column.

Disease involving a spinal nerve root (see SPINAL NERVE ROOTS) which may result from compression related to INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; SPINAL CORD INJURIES; SPINAL DISEASES; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include radicular pain, weakness, and sensory loss referable to structures innervated by the involved nerve root.

An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.

Ischemia or infarction of the spinal cord in the distribution of the anterior spinal artery, which supplies the ventral two-thirds of the spinal cord. This condition is usually associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS of the aorta and may result from dissection of an AORTIC ANEURYSM or rarely dissection of the anterior spinal artery. Clinical features include weakness and loss of pain and temperature sensation below the level of injury, with relative sparing of position and vibratory sensation. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1249-50)
