Objective: To evaluate the effects of manual therapy combine with Baduangong exercise to treat neck-type cervical spondylosis. Methods: Patients were randomized to control group (cervical manipulation) and experimental group (combining cervical manipulation with Baduangong exercise). The two groups received manipulation of the cervical spine alone every other day for 2 weeks, and the experimental group performed Baduangong also. VAS scale and NDI were all completed. Results: There were 21 patients, 12 in control group and 9 in experimental group. The mean age of the patients is 39.1±5.2years. Mean VAS score and NDI of the control group is 3.31±0.99 and 28.67±7.88, while 3.74±0.92, 27.11±2.93 in experimental group, respectively. After treatment, two groups reduce pain significantly, and the experimental group showed a quick improvement. 4 patients (33.3%) relapse in control group and 1 patient (11.1%) in experimental group. Significant differences were found in between pre and pro-treat (P<0.05), however, there was no statistics difference between two groups (P>0.05). Conclusion: It is suggested that manual therapy can relieve neck pain, moreover, combine with Baduangong exercise, it is more beneficial to relieve neck and reduce the recurrence rate.
