Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study is to compare the proprioceptive reposition errors in cervical Spondylosis subjects compared with age and gender matched normal subjects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 132 subjects (66 cervical spondylosis subjects and 66 age and gender matched normal subjects) age range 30– 60 years were recruited for the study. The subjects were measured for proprioceptive reposition errors (degrees) by the cervicocephalic kinesthetic sensibility tests which include head-to-Neutral Head Position (NHP) repositioning tests and head-to-Target Repositioning tests with cervical range of motion (CROM) device. The two repositioning tests were performed in the sagital, transverse, and frontal planes. The repositioning errors of cervical spondylosis subjects were compared with the age and gender matched normal subjects using independent t test. RESULTS: Independent t test results showed that there are increased proprioceptive errors in cervical spondylosis subjects in all the three cardinal planes (<0.01) in both the Head-to NHP repositioning tests and head-to-Target Repositioning tests in comparison with age and gender matched normal individuals. CONCLUSION: Cervical proprioceptive reposition errors are increased in subjects with cervical spondylosis in comparison with age and gender matched normal individuals
