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.

The efficacy of Cervical Lordosis rehabilitation for nerve root function, pain, and segmental motion in Cervical Spondylotic Radiculopathy

PUBLISHED: PhysioTherapy 2011; 97 Supplement: 846-847. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/258226733

AUTHORS: Moustafa IM, Diab AM, Ahmed A, Harrison DE.

CONCLUSIONS: Improved lordosis in the study group was associated with significant improvements in nerve root function, VAS rating, and translational and rotational motions of the lower cervical spine.

Only in the study group were the results maintained at long-term follow up.

IMPLICATIONS: Appropriate physical rehabilitation for Cervical Spondylotic Radiculopathy should include cervical sagittal curve correction, as it is may to lead greater and longer lasting improved function.

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.

Association between Cervical Lordotic Curvature and Cervical Muscle cross‐sectional area in patients with Loss of Cervical Lordosis

PUBLISHED: Clin Anat. 2018 Jul;31(5):710-715. doi: 10.1002/ca.23074. Epub 2018 Apr 14. Pub Med: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29575212

AUTHORS: Yoon SY1, Moon HI1, Lee SC2, Eun NL3, Kim YW2.

CONCLUSION: There is a significant relationship between cervical muscle imbalance, including extensor muscle weakness, and loss of cervical lordosis.

Spinal Centre Note: Muscular strengthening needs to be combined with structural correction of the cervical lordosis to obtain the best outcome.

Cervical Cord Compression and Whole-Spine Sagittal Balance

OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate the relationship between cervical cord compression and factors related to whole-spine sagittal balance.

CONCLUSIONS: Cervical cord compression is more likely to develop in patients with sagittal imbalance. It is important to use whole-spine radiograph and whole-spine T2 scout magnetic resonance imaging to analyze CCI in these patients.

Cervical Cord Compression and Sagittal Balance

Nerve Damage in the Neck Related to Posture Balance

Sagittal Balance Matters For Neck Nerve Damage

A recent paper presented to World Neurosurgery, Science Direct and published through the PubMed investigates the relationship of posture and compression of the spinal cord in the neck.

As a Corrective Chiropractor, utilising postural and structural correction techniques of Chiropractic BioPhysic, this is one of many papers on PubMed, validating what we do.
