Pain syndromes of the spine constitute the interdisciplinary diagnostic and therapeutic problem. These problems are in the range of interest of GPs, orthopedists, rheumatologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, of physiotherapists, manual psychotherapists, neurologists, neurosurgeons. This fact explains the genesis of diverse classification systems adapted for individual needs of the specialties. However these classifications do not meet requirements of the sanatorium treatment. The aim of this study was to present a simplified ranking of pain syndromes of the cervical spine, which takes into consideration essential aspects of the sanatorium treatment. The proposed system was worked out on the basis of medical documentation analysis of patients with pain syndromes of the cervical spine, cured in the sequence of one year in sanatoria of LÄ…dek spa. The obtained statistical data, which took clinical aspects into consideration, allowed to establishing (on the basis of medical documentation and patient examination) a verifiable eight-point classification system of pain syndromes of the cervical spine, which is possible to carry out in sanatorium conditions. Introduction of such a classification system into the practice of the spa health care should facilitate accurate establishment of therapeutic recommendations and achievement of optimal results.
