Objective: To evaluate cervical lordosis with Cobb, Tangent and effective cervical lordosis methods and the correlation of these parameters with chronic neck pain. Patients and Methods: Forty-four patients who applied to the outpatient clinic with the complaint of chronic neck pain were included. Neck pain was evaluated by visual analogue scale (VAS) and cervical rotation, flexion, extention, and right and left lateral flexion angles were noted. Cobb and Tangent angles were measured and effective lordosis was evaluated with lateral cervical roentgenogram. The correlation analysis was made with Spearman’s test. Results: High correlations were found between the Cobb and Tangent methods (r=0.92, p<0.01). The correlation between the Cobb and effective lordosis methods was moderate (r=0.60, p<0.01). High correlation was noted between the Tangent and effective lordosis methods (r=0.71, p<0.01). No correlation was found between the VAS scores and the Cobb, Tangent and effective lordosis methods. Also, no correlations were found between rotation, flexion, extension, right and left lateral flexions and the Cobb, Tangent and effective lordosis methods. Conclusion: Since the Tangent method is more practical than the Cobb method and has a higher correlation with effective lordosis, the Tangent method can be used to measure cervical lordosis easily and reliably. We found no correlation between neck pain and cervical lordosis.
