Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To ascertain if it is effective to use extradural injections and manual repositioning of the spine to treat megalgia caused by cervical spondylotic radiculopathy (CSR).

METHODS:

Patients with megalgia caused by CSR were divided into a treatment group (n = 46) treated by extradural injection and manual repositioning of the spine and a control group (n = 46) treated by a conventional method.

RESULTS:

The prevalence of cure was 58.69% and the total prevalence of effective cure in the treatment group was 97.83% and was 23.91% and 78.26%, respectively, in the control group: this difference between the two groups was significant (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Treatment of megalgia caused by CSR by extradural injections and manual repositioning of the spine has a good curative effect with rapid analgesia and short therapeutic course.
