Abstract Objective. To evaluate the relationship between load-carrying on the head and the development of degenerative change in the cervical spine. Design and subjects. A case-control study was performed with 35 individuals who had carried loads on their head (carriers) and 35 persons who never had carrier loads on their head (non-carriers). A scoring system was utilized for the assessment of the degenerative change in the cervical spine at the C3/C4, C4/C5, C5/C6 and C6/C7 levels on lateral… Expand
