Abstract:

Aim. To compare the results of testing on the David G140 and G160 simulators of patients 6 months after surgical treatment fordegenerative lesions of the cervical spine with rehabilitation for a period of 3–4 months after surgical treatable included, with theresults of patients 6 months after surgical treatable without rehabilitation.Material and methods. The study involved 28 patients. Among these: 15 patients had previously undergone rehabilitation for a periodof 3–4 months after surgical treatable, 13 patients didn’t have prior rehabilitation. During testing, the range of motion in the cervicalregion and the strength characteristics of the extensor muscles, lateral flexors and rotators of the cervical spine were evaluated.Results. The results of patients who had undergone rehabilitation for a period of 3–4 months were better than of those patientswithout rehabilitation.Conclusion. The study allows us to conclude that it is important to test the muscles of the cervical region in order to assess theirstrength characteristics for the correct construction of the rehabilitation process in the postoperative period.
