Abstract

Objectives: To investigate the correlation among cervical curvature, neck pain, and headache in patients with chronic neck pain. Methods: A clinical study was carried out in 48 chronic neck pain patients in the hospital of Gang-Dong Kyung-Hee University. The curvature of the cervical spine was measured by 3 types of measuring methods, Neck pain and headache were estimated using questionnaire and visual analogue scale (VAS). Results: Curvature angles of the cervical spine had significant positive correlation with the neck pain and headache, and headache can be estimated by cervical curvature using linear regression. Conclusions: The results suggests that the cervical curvature of chronic neck pain patients has a positive correlation with the nock pain and headache, and cervical curvature will be a posible preditor of chronic tension-type headache in patients with chronic neck pain.
