What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

An evaluation of the effectiveness of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on cervical spondylosis Objective: To investigate the clinical efficacy of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on patients with cervical spondylosis. Patients and methods: Sixty patients with cervical spondylosis were grouped using computer-generated random numbers. Group A (n=30) received acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction. Group B (n=30) received (...) , the NDI and PSQI scores of group A were significantly lower than those in group B (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture using seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction was more effective, reduced neck pain, and improved sleep quality in patients with cervical spondylosis compared to acupuncture of non-relevant acupuncture points.
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.

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
Enhanced external counterpulsation and traction therapy ameliorates rotational vertebral artery flow insufficiency resulting from cervical spondylosis Clinical trial of patients with rotational vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) resulting from cervical spondylosis.To investigate the effectiveness of enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) and traction therapy for these patients.EECP would reduce arterial stiffness and vascular resistance, and increase regional blood flow of vertebral (...) arteries, thus may ameliorate symptoms in these patients.One hundred sixty-three patients who were clinically suspected rotational VBI caused by cervical spondylosis were enrolled in this study. They were randomly allocated into 3 groups: EECP + traction, EECP, and traction group. All patients and 50 healthy volunteers received transcranial color Doppler examination of the vertebral artery and basilar artery in both a neutral cervical spine position and a rotational position.Within 3 days after

Cost-effectiveness of single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for cervical spondylosis Cost-effectiveness of single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for cervical spondylosis Cost-effectiveness of single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for cervical spondylosis Angevine P D, Zivin J G, McCormick P C Record Status This is a critical abstract of an economic evaluation that meets the criteria for inclusion on NHS EED. Each abstract contains a brief summary (...) of the methods, the results and conclusions followed by a detailed critical assessment on the reliability of the study and the conclusions drawn. Health technology The study compared three different treatments for single-level anterior cervical spondylosis. These were anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with autograft, ACDF with allograft, and ACDF with allograft and plating (ACDF+AP). Type of intervention Treatment.

Surgery for degenerative lumbar spondylosis. This section is under preparation and will be included in the next issueDegenerative conditions affecting the lumbar spine are variously described as lumbar spondylosis or degenerative disc disease (which we regarded as one entity) and are associated with back pain, instability, spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis. The objective of this review was to assess the effects of surgical interventions for the treatment of degenerative lumbar (...) for degenerative lumbar spondylosis were identified. There were many serious weaknesses of trial design, including poor methods of randomisation, lack of blinding and lack of independent assessment of outcome which at times gave considerable potential for bias. Most of the published results were reporting on technical surgical outcomes with some crude ratings of clinical outcome, but few patient-centred outcomes of pain, disability or capacity for work. There was a particular lack of long-term outcomes
