Correlation between Cervical Lordosis and Cervical Disc Herniation in young patients with Neck Pain

PUBLISHED: Medicine (Baltimore). 2019 Aug;98(31):e16545. doi: 10.1097/MD.0000000000016545. PubMed: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31374017

AUTHORS: Gao K, Zhang J, Lai J, Liu W, Lyu H, Wu Y, Lin Z, Cao Y.

RESULTS: The degree of disc herniation was higher in the straight and kyphosis groups compared to the lordosis group.

With the improvement of cervical lordotic curvature, the degree of disc herniation decreased and height of disc space increased.

CONCLUSIONS: The degree of disc herniation and cervical spinal cord compression are inversely correlated to cervical lordosis in young neck pain patients, and the degree of disc herniation and height of disc space can recover with the recovery of cervical lordotic curvature.

Chiropractic BioPhysics Research Update

Chiropractic BioPhysics leads the way with Scientific Research

Surgeons, Neurologists and Physiotherapists supporting Postural and Structural Correction

We are in exciting times with regard to Chiropractic BioPhysics Research and our clinical work @ The Spinal Centre. Multiple landmark papers and clinical trials have been recently published that will enhance the care of all patients attending the Practice.

To kick off the year – and it is a particularly ground breaking study – is the link between increased blood flow to the brain after restoring the curve with in the neck.

That’s right! Increased Cerebral Blood Flow, evidenced on brain magnetic resonance angiogram, following correction of Cervical Lordosis.

Does improvement towards a normal Cervical Sagittal configuration aid in the management of Cervical Myofascial Pain Syndrome

PUBLISHED: BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2018 Nov 12;19(1):396. doi: 10.1186/s12891-018-2317-y. Pub Med: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30419868

AUTHORS: Moustafa IM, Diab AA, Hegazy F, Harrison DE.

CONCLUSION: The addition of the denneroll cervical orthotic to a multimodal program positively affected chronic myofascial cervical pain syndrome (CMCPS) outcomes at long term follow up.

Addition of a Sagittal Cervical Posture Corrective Orthotic Device to a Multimodal Rehabilitation Program Improves Short- and Long-Term Outcomes in Patients with Discogenic Cervical Radiculopathy

PUBLISHED: Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2016 Dec;97(12):2034-2044. doi: 10.1016/j.apmr.2016.07.022. Epub 2016 Aug 27. Pub Med: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27576192

AUTHORS: Moustafa IM, Diab AA, Taha S, Harrison DE.

CONCLUSIONS: The addition of the Denneroll cervical orthotic device to a multimodal program positively affected discogenic CR outcomes at long-term follow-up.

We speculate that improved cervical lordosis and reduced AHT contributed to our findings.
