A chiropractic service arrangement for musculoskeletal complaints in industry: a pilot study. (1/707)

Chiropractic services are commonly used by workers with musculoskeletal problems, especially low back and neck complaints. Research into the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of this approach is, however, difficult to design without prior pilot studies. This study followed 32 workers with these complaints attending one such service and used five measures of outcome over a 6-month period. These measured pain (VAS), disability (FLP), quality of life (SF-36), perceived benefit and satisfaction with care. Additionally, sickness costs to the companies were recorded over two years encompassing the study period. Treatment utilization was also monitored. Over half the population were chronic sufferers. The effect sizes were large for pain and for seven out of eight dimensions of the SF-36 questionnaire at 6-month follow-up, although not for disability (FLP). High levels of satisfaction and perceived improvement were reported and sickness costs to the companies fell. However, the sample size in this pilot study was small and did not include controls. We would, therefore, recommend a full cost-effectiveness study incorporating a randomized trial in this area.  (+info)

Pain after whiplash: a prospective controlled inception cohort study. (2/707)

OBJECTIVES: In Lithuania, there is little awareness of the notion that chronic symptoms may result from rear end collisions via the so-called whiplash injury. After most such collisions no contact with the health service is established. An opportunity therefore exists to study post-traumatic pain without the confounding factors present in western societies. METHODS: In a prospective, controlled inception cohort study, 210 victims of a rear end collision were consecutively identified from the daily records of the Kaunas traffic police. Neck pain and headache were evaluated by mailed questionnaires shortly after the accident, after 2 months, and after 1 year. As controls, 210 sex and age matched subjects were randomly taken from the population register of the same geographical area and evaluated for the same symptoms immediately after their identification and after 1 year. RESULTS: Initial pain was reported by 47% of accident victims; 10% had neck pain alone, 18% had neck pain together with headache, and 19% had headache alone. The median duration of the initial neck pain was 3 days and maximal duration 17 days. The median duration of headache was 4.5 hours and the maximum duration was 20 days. After 1 year, there were no significant differences between the accident victims and the control group concerning frequency and intensity of these symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: In a country were there is no preconceived notion of chronic pain arising from rear end collisions, and thus no fear of long term disability, and usually no involvement of the therapeutic community, insurance companies, or litigation, symptoms after an acute whiplash injury are self limiting, brief, and do not seem to evolve to the so-called late whiplash syndrome.  (+info)

Epidurography and therapeutic epidural injections: technical considerations and experience with 5334 cases. (3/707)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Even in experienced hands, blind epidural steroid injections result in inaccurate needle placement in up to 30% of cases. The use of fluoroscopy and radiologic contrast material provides confirmation of accurate needle placement within the epidural space. We describe our technique and experience with contrast epidurography and therapeutic epidural steroid injections, and review the frequency of systemic and neurologic complications. METHODS: Epidural steroid injections were performed in 5489 consecutive outpatients over a period of 5 1/2 years by three procedural neuroradiologists. In 155 cases (2.8%), the injections were done without contrast material owing to either confirmed or suspected allergy. The remaining 5334 injections were performed after epidurography through the same needle. Patients and referring clinicians were instructed to contact us first regarding complications or any problem potentially related to the injection. In addition, the referring clinicians' offices were instructed to contact us regarding any conceivable procedure-related complications. RESULTS: Only 10 patients in the entire series required either oral (n = 5) or intravenous (n = 5) sedation. Four complications (0.07%) required either transport to an emergency room (n = 2) or hospitalization (n = 2). None of the complications required surgical intervention, and all were self-limited with regard to symptoms and imaging manifestations. Fluoroscopic needle placement and epidurography provided visual confirmation of accurate needle placement, distribution of the injectate, and depiction of epidural space disease. CONCLUSION: Epidurography in conjunction with epidural steroid injections provides for safe and accurate therapeutic injection and is associated with an exceedingly low frequency of untoward sequelae. It can be performed safely on an outpatient basis and does not require sedation or special monitoring.  (+info)

Risk factors for neck and upper limb disorders: results from 24 years of follow up. (4/707)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate associations between different potential risk factors, related and not related to work, and disorders of the neck and upper extremities occurring up to 24 years later. METHODS: The study comprised 252 women and 232 men, Swedish citizens, 42-59 years of age and in a broad range of occupations. Information about potential risk factors was available from a former study conducted in 1969. Data on disorders of the neck, shoulder, and hand-wrist disorders were obtained retrospectively for the period 1970-93. RESULTS: Risk factors were found to differ between the sexes. Among women over-time work, high mental workload, and unsatisfactory leisure time were associated with disorders in the neck-shoulder region. Interaction was found between high mental workload and unsatisfactory leisure time. Neck symptoms earlier in life were associated with recurrent disorders. Hand and wrist disorders were associated mainly with physical demands at work. Among men blue collar work and a simultaneous presence of high mental workload and additional domestic workload predicted disorders in the neck-shoulder region. CONCLUSIONS: Factors related and not related to work were associated with disorders of the neck, shoulders, and hands and wrist up to 24 years later in life. These included factors related to working hours which previously have not been noted in this context. Interactions between risk factors both related and not related to work were commonly found.  (+info)

A systematic review of randomized controlled trials of acupuncture for neck pain. (5/707)

OBJECTIVE: To establish whether there is evidence for or against the efficacy of acupuncture in the treatment of neck pain. METHODS: A systematic literature review was undertaken of studies that compared needle or laser acupuncture with a control procedure for the treatment of neck pain. Two reviewers independently extracted data concerning study methods, quality and outcome. RESULTS: Overall, the outcomes of 14 randomized controlled trials were equally balanced between positive and negative. Acupuncture was superior to waiting-list in one study, and either equal or superior to physiotherapy in three studies. Needle acupuncture was not superior to indistinguishable sham control in four out of five studies. Of the eight high-quality trials, five were negative. CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, the hypothesis that acupuncture is efficacious in the treatment of neck pain is not based on the available evidence from sound clinical trials. Further studies are justified.  (+info)

Fish processing work: the impact of two sex dependent exposure profiles on musculoskeletal health. (6/707)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the impact of work tasks, physical exposure, and psychosocial factors on the risk of musculoskeletal disorders in men and women, in a defined industrial setting. METHODS: 116 male and 206 female fish industry workers were compared with 129 men and 208 women with more varied work. Physical and psychosocial work load as well as musculoskeletal complaints were recorded by a questionnaire. A physical examination was performed and an observation method was used for work evaluation. 196 male and 322 female former fish processing workers received a postal questionnaire. RESULTS: The women workers in the fish industry had worse working conditions than the men for repetitiveness, constrained neck postures, and psychosocial work environment. They also had higher prevalences of complaints of the neck and shoulder (prevalence odds ratio (POR) 1.9; 95% confidence interval (95% CI) 1.1 to 3.2), neck and shoulder and elbow and hand complaints (POR 2.9; 95% CI 1.8 to 4.7 and POR 2.8; 95% CI 1.6 to 4.7, respectively). The women more often than the men left the industry because of neck and upper limb complaints. Also, women in other work had a higher prevalence of complaints of the neck and shoulder (POR 2.3; 95% CI 1.1 to 5.1) than the men. The men in the fish processing industry had a higher prevalence of complaints of the neck and shoulder than the men in other work (POR 3.6; 95% CI 1.6 to 8.0). This difference was not shown up by the questionnaire. CONCLUSIONS: Despite superficially similar work, there were clear sex differences in physical exposure and psychosocial work environment. Work in the fish processing industry was associated with a high risk of neck and upper limb disorders in women, which was probably mainly due to their extremely repetitive work tasks; the corresponding men had less repetitive work and less disorders. Also, a healthy worker effect on neck and upper limb disorders was found. The advantage of a physical examination compared with a questionnaire is clearly shown.  (+info)

Repeatability and validity of an upper limb and neck discomfort questionnaire: the utility of the standardized Nordic questionnaire. (7/707)

The repeatability and validity of a questionnaire for upper limb and neck complaints were assessed in a population of 105 hospital outpatients with a range of upper limb and neck disorders (including cervical spondylosis, adhesive capsulitis, lateral epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and Raynaud's phenomenon). Subjects were asked to complete a modified Nordic-style upper limb and neck discomfort questionnaire on two occasions closely spaced in time. The repeatability of their responses was assessed by calculating a kappa coefficient (kappa), and the sensitivity and specificity of component items in the questionnaire were determined for specific diagnostic categories of upper limb and neck disorder. Symptom reports for pain in the upper limb and neck, pain interfering with physical activities, neurological symptoms and blanching were all found to be highly repeatable (kappa = 0.63-0.90). A number of regional pain reports proved to be very sensitive in relation to specific upper limb disorders, but, with the exception of reported finger blanching in patients with Raynaud's phenomenon, none proved to have a good specificity (range = 0.33-0.38). We conclude that a modified Nordic-style questionnaire is repeatable and sensitive, and is likely to have a high utility in screening and surveillance. However a complementary examination schedule of adequate specificity and repeatability is essential to establish a clinical diagnosis.  (+info)

Physical risk factors for neck pain. (8/707)

To identify physical risk factors for neck pain, a systematic review of the literature was carried out. Based on methodological quality and study design, 4 levels of evidence were defined to establish the strength of evidence for the relationship between risk factors and neck pain. Altogether, 22 cross-sectional studies, 2 prospective cohort studies, and 1 case-referent study were eligible for determining the level of evidence. The results showed some evidence for a positive relationship between neck pain and the duration of sitting and twisting or bending of the trunk. A sensitivity analysis was carried out excluding 3 items of the quality list, the importance of which seemed doubtful. On the basis of this sensitivity analysis, it was concluded that there is some evidence for a positive relationship between neck pain and the following work-related risk factors: neck flexion, arm force, arm posture, duration of sitting, twisting or bending of the trunk, hand-arm vibration, and workplace design.  (+info)

The Neck Disability Index (NDI) and Northwick Park Neck Pain Questionnaire (NPQ) were developed to measure self-perceived disability from neck pain, including that which may arise from whiplash injury. However, there is little data specifically concerning their validity for whiplash-associated disorders (WAD). The aim of this study was to assess the validity of the NDI and NPQ as measures of outcome in WAD by comparing them to a patient preference questionnaire, the problem elicitation technique (PET), which identifies problems that are of most importance to the individual patient. A cross-sectional study of 71 patients with varying severity and duration of WAD were recruited from a private physiotherapy practice. All patients completed a standardized self-administered questionnaire that included demographic and clinical details as well as self-perceived pain and severity of symptoms, NDI and NPQ. A trained interviewer administered the PET. Construct validity of the disability measures was ...
Neck pain is widespread problem. The prevalence of neck pain in the Scandinavian countries is 36%. Of the working population the prevalence of chronic neck pain is 10 - 20%.The National Board of Health estimates that 5-6000 subjects per year in Denmark are involved in a traffic accident evoking whiplash-induced chronic neck pain. The main problems for patients with chronic neck pain are cervical dysfunction, reduced neck mobility and stability in addition to local and possibly generalised pain Besides chronic neck pain, patients may suffer from poor pain coping strategies and physical inactivity which influences physical function, general health and causes a poor quality of life.. Physical training including specific exercises targeting the deep postural muscles of the spine is effective in reducing neck pain for patients with chronic neck pain. Physical behavioural graded activity is a treatment approach with focus on increasing general physical fitness, reducing fear of movements and ...
From the FULL TEXT Article: Introduction Neck pain is one of the leading causes for global years lived with a disability. [1] In the general population, its 12 months prevalence ranges from 4.8 to 79.5 % (mean 25.8 %). [2] Its course is typically fluctuating, but the majority of patients do not completely recover from their symptoms [3] and about 5-10 % of all neck problems become chronic. [4] It is widely established that psychological factors play an important role in chronic non-specific neck pain. Particularly anxiety, depression and catastrophizing seem to negatively affect pain intensity and disability in this patient group. [5] Although different psychological variables might be crucial at different time points in the course of neck pain, patient populations are often rather heterogeneous in terms of symptom duration [6], and only very little is known about this temporal aspect. [7] In patients with sub-acute (and chronic) neck pain, coping strategies that involved self-assurance resulted ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Efficacy of manipulation for non-specific neck pain of recent onset. T2 - Design of a randomised controlled trial. AU - Leaver, Andrew M.. AU - Refshauge, Kathryn M.. AU - Maher, Christopher G.. AU - Latimer, Jane. AU - Herbert, Rob D.. AU - Jull, Gwendolen. AU - McAuley, James H.. PY - 2007. Y1 - 2007. N2 - Background. Manipulation is a common treatment for non-specific neck pain. Neck manipulation, unlike gentler forms of manual therapy such as mobilisation, is associated with a small risk of serious neurovascular injury and can result in stroke or death. It is thought however, that neck manipulation provides better results than mobilisation where clinically indicated. There is long standing and vigorous debate both within and between the professions that use neck manipulation as well as the wider scientific community as to whether neck manipulation potentially does more harm than good. The primary aim of this study is to determine whether neck manipulation provides more rapid ...
Although neck pain is common in young adulthood, studies on predictive factors for its onset and persistence are scarce. It is therefore important to identify possible risk factors among young adults so as to prevent the development of neck pain later in life. A prospective study was carried out in healthy undergraduate students. At baseline, a self-administered questionnaire and standardized physical examination were used to collect data on biopsychosocial factors. At 3, 6, 9, and 12 months thereafter, follow-up data were collected on the incidence of neck pain. Those who reported neck pain on ≥ 2 consecutive follow-ups were categorized as having persistent neck pain. Two regression models were built to analyze risk factors for the onset and persistence of neck pain. Among the recruited sample of 684 students, 46% reported the onset of neck pain between baseline and 1-year follow-up, of whom 33% reported persistent neck pain. The onset of neck pain was associated with computer screen position not

The human head is very heavy and we rely on our necks to support this. The neck is made up of seven bones called vertebrae and the vertebrae are cushioned by spongy structures called intervertebral discs.. The vertebrae and discs are bound together by a complex network of ligaments. The muscles provide the neck with both movement as well as extra support.. The neck is very mobile and because the neck joints have a greater range of movement, they are less stable and are more susceptible to injury.. The cause of chronic neck pain:. Most people with chronic neck pain do not have any damage to their spine. The pain comes from the muscles, ligaments and joints. More persistent neck pain may also be associated with arthritis of the facet joints and degeneration of the discs.. The most common cause of chronic neck pain in the neck is due to dysfunction of the facet joints.. These are the small articulation joints at the back of the spine.. When one of the joints becomes irritated it usually results ...
Nonspecific chronic neck pain has a high prevalence and is very common in clinical practice.. Manual therapy (MT) studies of techniques like mobilization, manipulation, and therapeutic exercise, has been demonstrated effectiveness for the treatment of pain and disability in the neck. These investigations have thought of this treatments as individual interventions. Thus, multimodal ways of treatment to improve patients with nonspecific chronic neck pain are necessary.. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a multimodal treatment protocol compared to a unimodal treatment protocol in the medium-term, on patients with chronic non-specific neck pain.. Subjects are randomly allocated into three groups: MT group; MT+Educational therapy (ET) group; and MT+ET+Exercise group. Each subject receive a 4 weeks period treatment (8 sessions). Outcome measures include physical, somatosensory, and psychosocial characteristics; which are measure at 0, 4, 8, 16 weeks by a blinded assessor. ...

Background: Several studies have investigated cervical kinematic performance in patients with chronic neck pain, especially with fast movements. A recent systematic review recommended further study of cervical spine kinematics of naturally paced cervical motions in individuals with neck pain. Objectives: This study aimed to examine cervical spine kinematics of naturally paced cervical motions in patients with chronic neck pain compared with a group of asymptomatic participants. Also, the relationships between cervical kinematic measures with neck pain intensity and disability were determined. Method: Kinematic performance was measured in 20 individuals with chronic nonspecific neck pain and 20 healthy controls. Data were captured using a 7-camera motion analysis system. Parameters were range of cervical motion, peak velocity, duration of movement, and jerk index (smoothness of movement). Pain intensity and Neck Disability Index were also measured. Results: Duration of movements, peak velocities, ...
The neck is a very vulnerable part of the spine. It is susceptible to injury. Muscle, ligament, nerve, and spine injuries are common causes of neck pain. Poor posture and wear and tear can also cause neck pain. Degenerative diseases, such as arthritis, can cause the spinal structures to break down and put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Neck pain can spread to the head, shoulders, arms, and hands. It can be acute or chronic. Acute neck pain begins suddenly, usually after an injury.

Head-eye movement control deficit is an identified problem in patients with chronic neck pain, particularly in cases of whiplash associated disorders (WAD). To date, there is no evidence concerning the reliability and validity of visually assessed active head-eye movement control tests. Therefore, the objectives of the present cross-sectional study were, a) to develop a test battery; and b) to investigate inter-observer reliability and discriminative validity in patients with chronic neck pain compared to healthy controls. The study was conducted at two physiotherapy clinics in Switzerland. Ethics Committee approval was obtained. Ten active head-eye coordination tests, on 23 patients with chronic neck pain and associated symptoms and 19 healthy controls, were videotaped. The tests included eye movements in the neutral head position and 45° relative neck rotation, gaze stability and sequential head-eye movements. All tests were performed in the sitting and standing positions. Two blinded

Background Neck pain is common, disabling and costly. Electrotherapy is an umbrella term that covers a number of therapies using electric current that aim to reduce pain and improve muscle tension and function.. Study characteristics This updated review included 20 small trials (N = 1239). We included adults (, 18 years old) with acute whiplash or non-specific neck pain as well as chronic neck pain including degenerative changes, myofascial pain or headaches that stem from the neck. No index for severity of the disorders could be specified. The evidence was current to August 2012. The results of the trials could not be pooled because they examined different populations, types and doses of electrotherapy and comparison treatments, and measured slightly different outcomes. Key results We cannot make any definitive statements about the efficacy of electrotherapy for neck pain because of the low or very low quality of the evidence for each outcome, which in most cases was based on the results of ...
Neck pain is a common complaint. The prevalence is approximately between 75% and 80% in the U.S. population. Fortunately, acute neck pain has a very favorable prognosis, with 80% of cases resolved within 2 years.1 But 20% of cases are estimated not to improve and of these, 5% are characterized by severe disabling chronic neck pain.2 The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) describes chronic cervical spine pain as follows: Pain perceived as arising from anywhere within the region bounded superiorly by the superior nuchal line, inferiorly by an imaginary transverse line through the tip of the first thoracic spinous process, and laterally by sagittal planes tangential to the lateral borders of the neck.3 The potential sources of neck pain are derived from those structures that have abundant nociceptive innervation, which include the cervical zygapophysial (facet) joints (including atlantoaxial and atlanto-occipital), posterior neck muscles, cervical intervertebral discs, vertebral ...
Neck pain can range from mild stiffness upon neck movement to sharp neck pain with pain shooting into an arm or hand.

The relationship between neck pain and our pillow is more important than most of us realize! Though we all may have at one time or another slept on a variety of surfaces, and used any number of pillows (flat, medium, bulky) made of different materials (foam, feather, air, water, or memory foam), its usually not until neck pain and/or headaches start to become an issue that we start to think, …how important is my pillow? Thankfully, the question has been addressed in a randomized peer-reviewed study. So, what did they find out?. The goal of a pillow is to support the neck more so than the head. In a study headed by Dr. Liselott Persson of the department of neurosurgery at the University of Lund in Sweden, researchers tested whether specific neck pillows have any effect on neck pain, headache, and sleep quality in people suffering with chronic (,3months), non-specific neck pain. They also researched whether there was an optimum or best type of pillow that was preferred by their 52 patient ...
Chiropractors are an interesting lot. They typically spend a lot of time talking about patient maintenance care, yet all too frequently, dont seem to understand what this term really means. What it doesnt mean is lots and lots of visits simply because endless adjustment are the only thing that seems to help. The problem is the adjustments, or therapy for that matter, never seem to last very long, and the problem of pain and dysfunction usually returns faster than we care to admit. That is unless all of the factors that are contributing to chronic neck pain patterns are addressed. If you want to get off the medical merry-go-round and get out of pain here is some serious information for those of you struggling with chronic neck pain and/or headaches..

This paper reports cross-national data concerning back or neck pain comorbidity with mental disorders. We assessed (a) the prevalence of chronic back/neck pain, (b) the prevalence of mental disorders among people with chronic back/neck pain, (c) which mental disorder had strongest associations with chronic back/neck pain, and (d) whether these associations are consistent across countries. Population surveys of community-dwelling adults were carried out in 17 countries in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific (N=85,088). Mental disorders were assessed with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview, third version (CIDI 3.0): anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder/agoraphobia, posttraumatic stress disorder, and social anxiety disorder), mood disorders (major depression and dysthymia), and alcohol abuse or dependence. Back/neck pain was ascertained by self-report. Between 10% and 42% reported chronic back/neck pain in the previous ...
The estimated prevalence of chronic neck pain in 2006 among noninstitutionalized individuals for the state of North Carolina was 2.2% (95% confidence interval [95% CI] 1.7-2.6).

Some of you may have noticed the pictures from this weekends Prudential Ride London on the Facebook page. Ive also treated a few cyclists recently complaining of neck pain when cycling.. What causes neck pain when cycling?. Quite simply as human beings we are not designed to be on a bike. We are designed to be upright on two feet. On a bike, in order to be able to see the road ahead, the neck is pulled back into extension. This causes the joints to jam against each other and leads to neck pain when cycling. Riding with the arms outstretched for 2 or 3 hours at a time can also cause fatigue and neck pain when cycling long distances. If the neck and shoulder muscles are not strong enough to support the weight of the head (typically 6kg!) in this position then tension will build up in the neck muscles and lead to neck pain.. What can be done to prevent neck pain when cycling?. A combination of chiropractic treatment to loosen restricted joints in the spine and massage to specific tight neck ...

Relief may be in sight for women with chronic neck pain?neck-muscle exercises done as little as 2 times a week. In a new study, Finnish researchers looked at 180 female office workers at Jyvaskyla Central Hospital who reported constant or frequent neck pain. The participants underwent endurance training or strength training or were placed in a control group. The endurance-training group concentrated on exercises such as lifting the head while lying on the back or stomach. The strength-training group did high-density neck-strengthening exercises using an elastic band. Also, women in both of these groups used weights to strengthen the shoulder, back, and arm muscles and were encouraged to perform aerobic exercise. Control group participants were only encouraged to perform a 20-minute aerobic activity 3 times a week. After a year, women in the endurancetraining and strength-training groups saw a considerable reduction in average neck pain, compared with those in the control group. ...
BACKGROUND: Correlations between clinical and quantitative measures of pain sensitivity are poor, making it difficult for clinicians to detect people with pain sensitivity. Clinical detection of pain sensitivity is important because these people have a different prognosis and may require different treatment. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between clinical and quantitative measures of pain sensitivity across individuals with and without neck pain. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 40 participants with chronic neck pain and 40 age- and sex-matched controls. Participants underwent quantitative sensory testing of cold pain thresholds (CPTs) and pressure pain thresholds (PPTs). Clinical tests for pain sensitivity were the ice pain test and the pressure pain test. All tests were undertaken at standardized local (neck and upper trapezius muscles) and remote (wrist and tibialis anterior muscles) sites. Median and interquartile range (IQR) were ...
Bloomington, Minnesota. Study Outcomes & Clinical Relevance: For chronic neck pain, the use of strengthening exercise, whether in combination with spinal manipulation or in the form of a high-technology MedX program, appears to be more beneficial to patients with chronic neck pain than the use of spinal manipulation alone. An additional finding was that 85% of the patients with chronic neck pain were able to engage in MedX therapy with no exacerbation of head or neck pain, and the remaining patients experienced only transient, self-limited discomfort.. ...

Chronic neck pain is a prevalent and disabling condition among older adults. Despite the large burden of neck pain, little is known regarding the cost-effectiveness of commonly used treatments. This study aimed to estimate the cost-effectiveness of home exercise and advice (HEA), spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) plus HEA, and supervised rehabilitative exercise (SRE) plus HEA.. Cost-effectiveness analysis conducted alongside a randomized clinical trial (RCT) was performed, and total of 241 older adults (≥65 years) with chronic mechanical neck pain comprised the patient sample.. The outcome measures were direct and indirect costs, neck pain, neck disability, SF-6D-derived quality-adjusted life years (QALYs), and incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICERs) over a 1-year time horizon. Cost-effectivenesswas a secondary aim of the RCT.. Total costs for SMT+HEA were 5% lower than HEA and 47% lower than SRE+HEA. SMT+HEA also resulted in a greater reduction of neck pain over the year relative to HEA ...

Most people will experience neck pain at some time in their lives. In a review of all the research associated with treatments of neck pain, the authors concluded that for those suffering from chronic neck pain, chiropractic adjustments are more effective than any other approach.. Poor posture may contribute considerably to neck pain. Specifically, forward head posture can cause an overload of stress on the neck. For every inch your head moves forwards, it leverages 10 extra pounds to the muscles in your upper back and neck because they have to work that much harder to keep the head from dropping onto your chest. With modern electronics and desk jobs, this kind of stress is becoming more and more common. Chiropractic adjustments are key to maintaining good posture and physical health.. The cervical spine provides structural stability and support for the cranium, as well as a protection for the spinal cord and vertebral arteries. It also enables flexible movement and balance adaptation while ...
Results Of the 2240 patients who underwent a CT scan evaluating the cervical spine between August 1, 2009 and March 31, 67 patients underwent cervical CT scan for suspicious CDS. Among them, 36 had acute neck pain or headache with suspect of pseudogout attack, 27 had acute neck pain or headache with positive inflammation markers, and 4 had acute neck pain or headache only. One patient was excluded because of the dental artifact in the CT. Thirty-four patients were finally diagnosed with CDS. The final diagnosis of the 32 patients who were not diagnosed with CDS was as follows: rheumatoid arthritis (6), polymyalgia rheumatica (5), cervical spondylosis (4), giant cell arteritis (2), tumor metastasis to the cervical spine (1), osteomyelitis (1), ankylosing spondylitis (1), Calcific tendinitis of the longus colli (1), tension headache (1), neck spasm (1), and unknown (9).Table 1 shows clinical features of the CDS group and the Non-CDS group.

During the past years it has been reported that musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) have increased in working life. The body region with the highest prevalence of reported pain is the neck region. Several studies show that MSD in the neck region varies between 20-68% among dentists and dental hygienists. The dental personnel work with a limited field of vision and space, which often results in an unnatural work posture. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of neck pain in dentists and dental hygienists working in the county of Västra Götaland, Sweden and to explore possible work-related and individual risk factors. The study was based on a questionnaire, which was sent out to all dentists and dental hygienists (n = 473) who worked at Folktandvården (response rate 60%). The overall prevalence of neck pain (neck pain every day the past month) was 23%. Female dentists and dental hygienists had an increased risk of neck pain compared to male dentists (OR 2.68, 95% CI 1.22 - 6.75). ...

Background The most definitive diagnosis of neck pain caused by facet joints can be obtained through cervical medial branch blocks (CMBBs). However, intravascular injections need to be carefully monitored, as they can increase the risk of false-negative blocks when diagnosing cervical facet joint syndrome. In addition, intravascular injections can cause neurologic deficits such as spinal infarction or cerebral infarction. Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is a radiological technique that can be used to clearly visualize the blood vessels from surrounding bones or dense soft tissues. The purpose of this study was to compare the rate of detection of intravascular injections during CMBBs using DSA and static images obtained through conventional fluoroscopy. Methods Seventy-two patients were included, and a total of 178 CMBBs were performed. The respective incidences of intravascular injections during CMBBs using DSA and static images from conventional fluoroscopy

A Cervical Medial Branch Block is a simple and easy way to diagnose the cause of certain types of neck pain making them easier to treat.
Neck pain may occur in isolation, but often neck pain, ear pain and jaw pain co-exist, leading to pain when eating, speaking, moving the head, and even when lying down to sleep. Sometimes, this triad is a result of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), where the jaw joint and related bones, ligaments, and cartilage are typically swollen and painful, making it hard to open the jaw.. The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw to the front wall of the ear canal, meaning that pain and dysfunction in the jaw can cause referred ear pain as well as neck pain. TMJ is a temporary condition in some people, but it can persist in others, causing an increased risk of other health issues due to a reduced ability or enthusiasm to eat well and nourish the body overall ...

Who hasnt suffered from neck pain at some time in their lives? It is a common result of an excessively sedentary lifestyle with many hours spent in front of a computer or at the wheel of a car and letting the muscles stiffen and strain with lack of movement and bad posture. However, there are many more serious causes. Neck pain can result from accidental jolts such as whiplash in a car accident or from sports injuries. It can result from degenerative disc disease, from herniated discs, from a pinched nerve or from common infections such as sore throat that bring on a swelling of the lymph node. It can also come as a result of less common infections such as tuberculosis of the neck, osteomyelitis, fibromyalgia or polymyalgia rheumatica. Symptoms Neck pain usually takes the form of a dull ache, but it can also manifest itself as a sharp pain, as numbness or as tingling. Sometimes the neck simply feels tender. Pain can spread to the face or to the shoulders. It can be accompanied by headaches. It can even
This study by Hurwitz et al from 2005 looked at the type and frequency of adverse events associated with chiropractic treatments for neck pain. Study participants were included if they had neck pain without progressive neurologic deficit or presence of disc herniations. Additionally they were excluded if they had evidence of myelopathy, spondyloarthropathy or were involved in litigation. Patients were randomized in 2 x 2 x 2 groups which included manipulation vs. mobilization, heat therapy vs. without heat therapy, and electrical stimulation vs. without electrical stimulation.. During the enrollment period, approximately 1000 patients were identified that could participate in the study. Only 35% actually enrolled in the study. Of the initial 336 enrolled patients that were randomized into the 6 subgroups, 280 (83%) returned surveys regarding adverse effects from their treatments.. Adverse events included neck pain, arm pain, headache, dizziness, nausea, extremity weakness, confusion and ...
Axial neck pain after C3-6 laminoplasty has been reported to be significantly lesser than that after C3-7 laminoplasty because of the preservation of the C-7 spinous process and the attachment of nuchal muscles such as the trapezius and rhomboideus minor, which are connected to the scapula. The C-6 spinous process is the second longest spinous process after that of C-7, and it serves as an attachment point for these muscles. The effect of preserving the C-6 spinous process and its muscular attachment, in addition to preservation of the C-7 spinous process, on the prevention of axial neck pain is not well understood. The purpose of the current study was to clarify whether preservation of the paraspinal muscles of the C-6 spinous process reduces postoperative axial neck pain compared to that after using nonpreservation techniques.. Montano et al. studied 60 patients who underwent C3-6 double-door laminoplasty for the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy or cervical ossification of the ...

They also complaints of various physical, psychosomatic, and psychiatric signs such as anxiety and non-specific complaints related to autonomic imbalance.
