Abstract

Though cervical spine disorders occur less frequently than lumbar spine problems, their course and final results may have severe implications for patients. Despite significant development in operative treatment of cervical spine; patients, if possible, choose conservative methods basing mainly on pharmacotherapy and rehabilitation (physiotherapy). A case report of non-operative treatment with use of selected techniques of manual therapy and physiotherapy is described. Achieved improvement allowed postponing the surgery, but we cannot exclude the necessity of operation in the future.
