  Title Neck pain, sensorimotor control and chiropractic [Poster presented at the 1st College of Chiropractors’ Research Conference, 16th June 2006, BMA House, London, UK]
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2006 Dec;9(4):195-196
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Meeting Abstract
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: Background: Experimental and clinical evidence suggests that dysfunction of the cervical spine in neck pain patients is associated with impaired oculomotor and cervicocephalic kinaesthetic function in simple tasks. However, it is not known how complex oculomotor or cervicocephalic kinaesthetic functions are affected in specific sub-groups of neck pain patients. To date, there is little evidence of whether cervical spine manipulation improves sensorimotor performance in patients with neck pain. Two studies will aim to increase understanding of functional impairments associated with dysfunction of the cervical spine and of the effect that chiropractic spinal manipulation may have on these.

Study 1: Aims: Study 1 will investigate the effect of cervical spine dysfunction on accuracy of ocular tracking and on performance in tests of cervicocephalic proprioception and kinaesthesia.

Study 2 Aims: The effect of cervical spine manipulation on performance of ocular tracking and head repositioning tasks described above will be investigated in study 2.
