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 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.
Demonstration of Central Conduction Time and Neuroplastic changes after Cervical Lordosis Rehabilitation in Asymptomatic Subjects
PRESENTED: Proceedings of the 14th biennial congress of the World Federation of Chiropractic, March 15-18, 2017. Pub Med: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5345783/
AUTHORS: Moustafa IM, Diab AAM, Taha S, Harrison DE.
CONCLUSION: Improvement of cervical spine alignment has an effect on central conduction time.
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.
