In today’s society many people work in office jobs, administration and computers. This involves long hours working in front of a computer or ipad, laptop, smartphone and also not to mention commuting to and from work in a sitting posture. When we sit over time our head and neck move forward over the course of the day, muscle fatigue sets in and also the power of gravity. There is a new condition called ‘Tech Neck’ seen now in the health field, where the normal healthy Cervical curve, Cervical lordosis, is reversed and or lossed in some people.
There have been many different studies published that have investigated any possible link between neck pain and neck conditions and a person’s neck curve health. The research examined lateral cervical radiographs and the alignment of the Cervical Lordosis, the results of the study showed that there was a correlation with Cervical Lordotic alignment and neck conditions, including:
- Acute and Chronic neck pain
- Whiplash injury (WAD)
- DJD, Degenerative joint disease
- TMJ disorders
- Decreased range of motion
- Abnormal segmental motion patterns
- Respiratory syndromes
- Upper limb radiculopathy
The Denneroll Cervical Orthotic Device
The Denneroll cervical orthotic device was developed in Australia by Sydney Chiropractor Dr Adrian Dennewald. Dr Dennewald has since developed Denneroll Industries, a company committed to producing and developing safe, effective and easy to use home orthotic devices to improve spinal function and alignment. In 2008 Dr Dennewald joined with Chiropractic BioPhysics to help expand the new product line and to develop adequate guidelines for when to and when not to use the device, (indications and contraindications) and most importantly to improve the cervical lordosis and patient conditions.
The denneroll cervical orthotic cushion is designed to be used in the comfort of your own home, or at the office and even taken with you when travelling. With its unique and compact design, it is a breakthrough product for orthotic devices. It comes in 3 different sizes, 2 adult sizes large and medium and a small pediatric size. The denneroll has been tested in many different case study reports and also in 2 randomized control trials. The results found the denneroll cervical orthotic is effective in improving the cervical lordosis in patients from a range between 7-14 degrees.
