To determine whether patients qualified for study inclusion, patients were palpated for tenderness at the cervical reflex points which are located at the temporal bone styloid processes (adjacent to C1), lateral spinous processes (C2-C7) and lateral tips of the transverse processes (C1C7).
We conducted a retrospective study to determine the treatment outcomes of 6 patients who had either unilateral or bilateral elongated styloid processes and symptoms consistent with Eagle syndrome.
To measure movements of the upper limbs, we placed 15 reflective markers, mounted on the right side, on the following anatomical landmarks (Figure 1): one on the forehead (1), one on the right ear (2), three on the sternum (3-5), one on the right acromion (6), one on the lateral epicondyle of the right elbow (7), one on each of the styloid processes of the ulna and the radius (8-9), one on each of the second and fifth metacarpophalangeal joints (10-11), one on the center of the wheel to represent the origin of the global coordinate system (12), and one on each of the three beams of the wheel (13-15).

In this procedure the elbow articular line (determined by the medial and lateral epicondyles of humerus), and the wirst articular line (determined by the styloid processes of radius and ulna) were taken as reference.
For kinematic analysis, 31 anatomical reflective markers (Figure 1, spherical markers with a diameter of 18 mm) were placed on the anterior superior iliac spine, the iliac crest, the sacrum, the greater trochanter, the medial and lateral femoral condyles, the medial and lateral malleolus, the heel, the head of the first and fifth metatarsals, the top of the acromion, the medial and lateral epicondyle of the humerus and the styloid processes of radius and ulna.
