  • In all patients, pain was exacerbated by wide−angle and fast movements of the neck along both the coronal and sagittal planes. It is worth noting that the topographic distribution of pain mainly reflects the level of the compression (C6 root). The plus (+) and minus (−) indicate presence or absence of pain or paraesthesias.
