The great variability of the flexion of the cervical spine renders an exact description of the control of various positions difficult. A method was developed enabling a precise control of positioning the cervical spine and head in the sagittal plane. In three repeated measurements the mean values of the position of external anatomical landmarks and(More)
A group of 12 healthy men volunteered for the experiment. Electromyograms (EMG) were obtained from semispinalis capitis, splenius capitis, levator scapulae, and trapezius muscles. The flexion angle of the cervical spine was precisely adjusted to 0 degrees, 10 degrees, 20 degrees, and 30 degrees relative to the horizontal, with a constant angle of the(More)
