This lecture will be given in English
In this lecture the clinical characteristics, in terms of severity of pain, impairments in physical or mental functions and disability, and the complexity of traumatic and nontraumatic neck pain are presented and discussed. We show that clinical characteristics are differently associated with disability in both patient groups. Traumatic NP is a more complex condition as more characteristics interact, and the contribution of individual characteristics to disability is less straightforward. Findings presented contribute to a more thorough understanding of differences between subgroups of neck pain, the impact of neck pain on the daily functioning of people, and the use of accurate diagnostic instruments in primary care physiotherapy.
- to describe the clinical characteristics of two types of neck pain presenting in primary physiotherapy care, namely nontraumatic neck pain and traumatic neck pain
- to describe the complexity of these types of neck pain
- to understand differences between subgroups of neck pain, the impact of neck pain on the daily functioning of people
- to use accurate diagnostic instruments in people with neck pain in primary care physiotherapy.
