Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To explore the therapeutic effect of Neurac training on patients with cervical radiculopathy (CR).
METHODS: Sixty patients with CR were enrolled and randomly assigned into control group (CG) and Neurac training group (NG) with 30 patients for each group. The patients in CG group received conventional treatments for 2 weeks, including cervical traction, manual therapy and electrical therapy. The patients in NG group received Neurac training as well as conservative treatments for 2 weeks. The pain level and it impact on daily life were assessed by the numerical pain rating scale (NPRS) and the neck disability index (NDI) before the treatments and at the time of 1 week, 2 weeks after the treatments, respectively.
RESULTS: Following the treatment, significant improvements for NPRS and NDI were observed in both the two groups at the end of the first and second week. The improvements for both NPRS and NDI were higher in the NG than those in the CG, with P < 0.05.
CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicate that Neurac training can bring additional therapeutic benefits to conventional treatments for patients with CR.
