Many studies of vertebral artery (VA) blood flow changes related to cervical spine rotation have been published, but the findings are controversial and the evidence unconvincing. Recent Doppler measurements suggest that contralateral VA blood flow is compromised on full rotation in both healthy subjects and patients. More rigorous research is needed, and it was the aim of this study to conduct a meta-analysis of published data to inform professional practice. A systematic literature search… CONTINUE READING
