The neck-neck test allows the patient to sit, the examiner holds the lower jaw with both hands, and the chest or abdomen is pressed against the occiput, and the cervical vertebra is gradually pulled upward to gradually enlarge the intervertebral foramen. Symptoms such as numbness, pain, etc., or a relaxed feeling in the neck are positive. The positive indication is a patient with cervical spondylotic radiculopathy. Abnormal results in the chronic cases through traction to improve the degree of paralysis of soft tissue in the neck lesions, can reduce the original neck pain or upper extremity radiation signs. However, in acute cases with severe signs, this traction will increase the stimulation of aseptic inflammatory lesions at the muscle attachment, and the sign will increase weight.
