1. Ergonomic Latex Pillows as a Part of a Multimodal Intervention or as an Adjunct to Rehabilitation Programs in Cervical Spondylosis: Are They Useful?: A Randomized Controlled Trial. (Abstract)

Ergonomic Latex Pillows as a Part of a Multimodal Intervention or as an Adjunct to Rehabilitation Programs in Cervical Spondylosis: Are They Useful?: A Randomized Controlled Trial. This study evaluated the effectiveness of ergonomic latex pillows in terms of clinical and biomechanical (cervical range of motion) outcome measures in patients with cervical spondylosis.This parallel-group randomized controlled trial randomly assigned 42 patients with cervical spondylosis to the experimental (...) of motion in all directions. The simultaneous use of an ergonomic latex pillow and physical therapy could more successfully decrease pain intensity compared with routine physical therapy alone. In addition, extension and right lateral flexion variables significantly increased in the experimental group compared with the control group.The administration of an ergonomic latex pillow can ameliorate treatment outcome in patients with cervical spondylosis.

3. Spondylosis deformans as an indicator of transport activities in archaeological dogs: A systematic evaluation of current methods for assessing archaeological specimens. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Spondylosis deformans as an indicator of transport activities in archaeological dogs: A systematic evaluation of current methods for assessing archaeological specimens. Over the past several decades archaeologists have used the spinal pathology spondylosis deformans as an indicator that archaeological dogs were used to pull or carry loads. This interpretive approach is largely based upon observations of prehistoric dog remains and archaeologist's interpretations of veterinary literature (...) on recent sled dogs and other draft animals. However, no comparative large-scale studies of the occurrence of spondylosis deformans in wild canids, transport dogs, and dogs never involved in pulling or carrying loads have been published. To evaluate the reliability of spondylosis deformans in archaeological dogs as an indicator of participation in transport activities, 136 modern non-transport dogs, 19 sled dogs, and 241 wolves were systematically analyzed for the occurrence of spondylosis deformans

4. Surgical treatment of cervical spondylosis in patients 80 years of age and older-A retrospective observational study. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Surgical treatment of cervical spondylosis in patients 80 years of age and older-A retrospective observational study. The older adult population in developed countries is rapidly increasing, as is the number of older adults with cervical spondylosis. Previous studies on the surgical outcomes of older adults with cervical spondylosis have reported contradictory results. This study aimed to compare the surgical outcomes in adults with cervical spondylosis who were <80 and ≥80 years old. We (...) retrospectively investigated data from adults who underwent surgical treatment for cervical spondylosis between 2006 and 2016. The clinical outcomes and postoperative complications of patients who were <80 years old were compared to those of patients who were ≥80 years old. Of the 108 patients included in the study, 14 (13.0%) were ≥80 years old. The preoperative neurosurgical cervical spine score was significantly different between patients who were <80 (9.1 ± 2.4) and ≥80 (6.1 ± 2.1) years old (p < .001

7. Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation Full Text available with Trip Pro

Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation A novel pattern of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) abnormalities in cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) comprising abnormal central motor conduction time (CMCT) to the upper limbs and normal CMCT to the lower limbs was observed. CSM was more severe radiologically and tended to be more severe clinically when this pattern (...) was encountered.To further characterize this observation, 414 consecutive TMS evaluations of cervical spondylosis were reviewed. Those cases in which (a) CMCT was abnormal at the upper and (b) normal at the lower limbs and (c) a cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was available (ULabnormal group) were included for further analysis. Cases where CMCT was abnormal at the lower limbs only (LLabnormal) were used for comparison. MRI-measured sagittal and parasagittal diameters of the spinal canal at all

19. Association between Cervical Spondylosis and Migraine: A Nationwide Retrospective Cohort Study Full Text available with Trip Pro

Association between Cervical Spondylosis and Migraine: A Nationwide Retrospective Cohort Study Background: Few studies have investigated the longitudinal association between cervical spondylosis (CS) and migraine by using a nationwide population-based database. Methods: We conducted a retrospective cohort study from 2000 to 2011 identifying 27,930 cases of cervical spondylosis and 111,720 control subjects (those without cervical spondylosis) from a single database. The subjects were frequency (...) -matched on the basis of sex, age, and diagnosis date. The non- cervical spondylosis cohort was four times the size of the cervical spondylosis cohort. To quantify the effects of cervical spondylosis on the risk of migraine, univariate and multivariate Cox proportional hazard regression analyses were used to calculate the hazard ratio (HR), and 95% confidence interval (CI). Results: After a 10-year follow-up controlling for potential confounding factors, overall migraine incidence was higher
