ABSTRACT

ObjectivesTo measure and analyze the curvature of the cervical spine for university students.MethodsThis study carried out on 132 students. The cervical spine curvature was measured by six measuring methods. The type and numeric value of cervical spine curva-ture was analyzed by Angle of cervical curve (C1∼C7), Angle of cervical curve (C2∼C7), Jackson’s angle, Ishihara Index, Depth of cervical curve and Method of Jochumsen. Cervical spine curvatures between male and female are compared by Mann-Whitney test. Rate of type of cervical curvature between male and female are compared by linear by line-ar association.Results1. The average of angle of cervical curve (C1∼C7) is 33.78±9.85o, angle of cer-vical curve (C2∼C7) is 10.28±8.12o. The average of Jackson’s angle is 14.02±10.01o, average of Ishihara Index is 8.46±10.58%. The average of Depth of cervical curve is 5.15±4.72 mm and average of Method of Jochumsen is 0.94±3.83 mm. 2. More than half of student’s cervical curvature showed hypolordosis except Ishihara index. 3. There was significant difference in numeric value of cervical curvature between male and female both groups in terms of Ishihara index. 4. There were insignificant differences between male and female in terms of type of cervical curvature.ConclusionsAccording to above results, we found out average of student’s cervical curve. And the results suggest that most of the student’s cervical curvature decreased. (J Korean Med Rehab 2015;25(4):83-92)
