Cervical spondylosis, more than a pain in the neck?
With this in mind, a group at the China Medical University wanted to determine if there was an association between cervical spondylosis and the likelihood of suffering from migraines.
How was it done?
The group used a health insurance research database in Taiwan. From this database, a group patients with and without cervical spondylosis were selected. The group without spondylosis were matched, such that they had similarly ages, genders and presence of other illnesses such as diabetes. Over the next 10 years, between 2000-2010, the patients who developed migraine were noted. At the end of the study, the group looked at the relative risk of getting migraines and compared them between the groups.
