Neurogenic cervical spondylosis is the most common type of cervical spondylosis, accounting for approximately 60% percent of the incidence of cervical spondylosis. Cervical spine Long manipulation and sling exercise training (SET) have obtained good therapeutic results in clinical rehabilitation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Long manipulation combined with SET on neurogenic cervical spondylosis. In this assessor-blind, randomized controlled trial, 90 eligible patients will be randomized into a combination treatment group (Long manipulation combined with SET), a Long manipulation group and a conventional massage group. The visual analogue score, the Neck Disability Index score, and muscle fatigue in the bilateral upper oblique and Musculus sternocleidomastoideus, using mean power frequency and median frequency from the surface electromyography frequency domain index, will be assessed before and after the intervention at 0 and 4 weeks, respectively.Trial registration: Registered in the Chinese Clinical Trial Registration Center with the number ChiCTR2100054978.
