To observe the influence of the change of cervical curvature on the nerve root and the vertebral artery of the patients with cervical spondylosis and the curative effect of therapeutic manipulations.


Sixty cases of cervical spondylosis with the change of cervical curvature, 60 cases of cervical spondylosis without the change of cervical curvature and 60 normal people were chosen. They were clinically observed and the cervical spondylosis was treated by manipulations and the data was processed according to the principle of statistics.


The change of cervical curvature affected the nerve root and the vertebral artery and therapeutic manipulations produced a satisfactory curative effect.


Cervical spondylosis with change of cervical curvature has special characteristics in the etiology, course and state of the disease. The change of cervical curvature produces an effect on the nerve root and the vertebral artery. Selected therapeutic manipulations produce a better curative effect.

Key words: cervical vertebrae, nerve roots, vertebral artery, manipulation therapy
