The cervical spine exhibits considerable mobility, especially in axial rotation. Axial rotation exerts stress on anatomical structures, such as the vertebral artery which is commonly assessed during clinical examination. The literature is rather sparse concerning the in vivo three-dimensional segmental kinematics of the cervical spine. This study aimed at investigating the three-dimensional kinematics of the cervical spine during maximal passive head rotation with special emphasis on coupled… CONTINUE READING
