Efficacy of Cervical Spinal Stabilization Exercise on Reducing Pain for People with Cervical Spondylosis
Keywords:cervical spondylosis, cervical stabilization, conventional, exercise, pain, reduction.
Background: The synovial joint capsule, subchondral bone, and joint cartilage are all impacted by the gradual
degenerative condition known as OA. This research work is designed to check the efficacy of modified progressive
resistance training for OA knee patients.
Purpose: To compare the effectiveness of cervical stabilization exercises and conventional physiotherapy exercise
in reducing pain for patients with cervical spondylosis.
Materials and Methods: The study took place in Eyan Physiotherapy Centre, Sriperumbudur, A total no of 40
subjects were recruited for this study through the purposeful sampling method. All subjects were recruited based
on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The recruited subjects were assigned to two groups (Group A: 20 Subjects)
underwent Cervical Stabilization Exercise and (Group B: 20 Subjects) underwent Conventional Exercise. All
individuals are assessed for pain using Algometer as a pre-test prior to the intervention and again after 6 weeks of
intervention. The entire study process was performed from November 2022 to April 2023.
Results: This study states that cervical stabilization exercises are found to be more significant and more effective
in reducing pain compared to conventional therapy. The comparison of post mean value of Algometer of both the
groups. Group-A(Cervical Stabilization Exercise) was 4.30 and Group B(Conventional Exercise) was 3.65 which
shows gradual increase with p value <0.0001 statistically significant.
Conclusion: This study recommended that clinicians consider incorporating cervical stabilization exercises into
the treatment plan for individuals with cervical spondylosis. The evidence supporting the efficacy of cervical
stabilization exercise in reducing pain in individuals with cervical spondylosis.
