OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to determine if there are significant differences in postural control between cervical Spondylosis patients and healthy controls. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 60 subjects (30 cervical spondylosis subjects and 30 age and gender matched normal subjects) age range 30– 60 years were recruited for the study. The subjects were measured for postural control in terms of sway velocity (Mean x, Mean Y and Velocity moment) in two different conditions i.e. 1) Normal standing with eyes open and 2) Normal standing with eyes closed. The postural sway velocities 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 postural sway velocity in cervical spondylosis subjects in Normal standing with eyes open and closed conditions in comparison with age and gender matched normal individuals. The difference is significant (p<0.001) in all the outcome variables (Mean x, Mean Y and Velocity moment). CONCLUSION: Postural control is altered in subjects with cervical spondylosis in comparison with age and gender matched normal individuals
