ABSTRACT

Objectives This study was performed to analyze relationship between pillow height and patients of arm paresthesia. Methods The data were collected from December 2013 to April 2014. The subjects who visited in Korean Medical hospital for Arm paresthesia were 65. The pillow height was measured from the surface to occipital protuberance. And the angle of cervical spine was measured from the tragus to the acromion. Results 1. The average height of pillow was 5.36±2.37 cm, and the average of the angle of cervical spine was 18.62±8.94o. 2. Correlation and regression analysis were performed on the pillow height, the angle of cervical spine and paresthesia. There was a significant correlation between the pillow height and paresthesia (R=0.389). And it had correlation between the angle of cervical spine and paresthesia (R=0.269). 3. The regression analysis was used to determine the influence of elements. The pillow height can influence to the arm paresthesia. Conclusions Through this study, we found out significant relationship between pillow height, cervical angle and patients of arm paresthesia. This result suggests that the higher pillow height and cervical angle can cause the more painful arm paresthesia.
