Cervical spondylosis is a city disease with a sharp increase in the incidence rate of urban diseases. Many young people suffer from cervical spondylosis. Clinically, the incidence of cervical spondylosis gradually became younger. After the epidemiological investigation of cervical spondylosis, the incidence rate of cervical spondylosis in work stress and long term workers was high, reaching 58.70%~78.83%.

After studying the physiological curvature of cervical vertebra, it is pointed out that: people who have long-term bow work or have bad living habits and sleeping posture have a high probability of abnormal cervical physiological radian. Their cervical muscles and ligaments are in a state of imbalance for a long time, resulting in uneven distribution of intervertebral disc stress, fiber ring arrangement, and then disorder and fracture, eventually leading to vertebral body loosening and instability. On the one hand, this unstable state of the cervical spine will cause aggravation of muscle imbalance around the neck and repeated fatigue injury; on the other hand, it will cause intervertebral hemorrhage and edema, stimulate the sinus vertebral ganglion, cause different degrees of pain in the head, neck, shoulder, and back, and then further stimulate the branches of the peripheral nerves, forming a vicious circle of pain, muscle spasm, nerve edema, and pain.
