The objective of this study is to evaluate the remaining range of head movement after surgery and to account for the behavior of the intervertebral levels beyond the site of arthrodesis. There is an accurate reduction of the fracture and/or dislocation. Moreover, compensatory motion can take place on either side of the site of operation. It is concluded that any surgical intervertebral fusion jeopardizes the range of motion of the cervical spine.

Keywords:   arthrodesis, cervical spine, intervertebral fusion, compensatory motion, mobility, head movement
