Minimizing movement in the cervical spine of an immobilized patient remains a big factor in the comfort and outcome of patients with spinal injuries. The log roll technique and the lift and slide technique are two common methods of moving immobilized patient, but the questions arises, which is better? In comparing the two methods, studies were done that tested both the lift and slide and log roll techniques. Research shows the lift and slide method provides the most stability with the least head motion.
