Neck pain (NP) is one of the most common and costly musculoskeletal complaints in today's societies. Cervical muscles endurance has been commonly associated with the development of NP. Rea...
The purpose of this study is to assess the benefit of adding stretching exercises to cervical mobilization and cervical range of motion exercises on cervical range of motion, pain, pain th...
The aims of this research are to investigate relationship of deep cervical flexor muscle endurance with neck position sense and body balance in non-specific chronic neck pain, and to compa...
Neck pain is a very common problem in the population. Most of the patients suffer from neck pain for long time and the problem becomes chronic. The investigators studied the effects of sca...
A long term habitual posture with abnormal loading of ligaments and muscles, leads to development of neck pain. 33 patients including 18 males and 15 females were selected and randomly all...
Impairment in the cervical proprioception and deep flexor muscle function and morphology have been regarded to be associated with chronic neck pain (CNP).
(1) To examine the heritability of TMD pain and of neck pain; and (2) to estimate the potential overlap in genetic and environmental factors influencing TMD pain and neck pain.
The present study compared the effects of neck isometric exercise (NIE) and craniocervical flexion exercise (CFE) on cervical lordosis, muscle endurance of cervical flexion, neck disability index (NDI...
Neck muscle vibration can influence cervical proprioception and sensorimotor function. It is hypothesized to affect motor performance differently in persons with and without neck pain.
People with neck pain (NP) experience sensorimotor and oculomotor deficits thought to be due to abnormal cervical afferent input. Convergence insufficiency (CI) measured by near point convergence (NPC...
Discomfort or more intense forms of pain that are localized to the cervical region. This term generally refers to pain in the posterior or lateral regions of the neck.
Dissection in the neck to remove all disease tissues including cervical LYMPH NODES and to leave an adequate margin of normal tissue. This type of surgery is usually used in tumors or cervical metastases in the head and neck. The prototype of neck dissection is the radical neck dissection described by Crile in 1906.
General or unspecified injuries to the neck. It includes injuries to the skin, muscles, and other soft tissues of the neck.
An aggressive THYROID GLAND malignancy which generally occurs in IODINE-deficient areas in people with previous thyroid pathology such as GOITER. It is associated with CELL DEDIFFERENTIATION of THYROID CARCINOMA (e.g., FOLLICULAR THYROID CARCINOMA; PAPILLARY THYROID CANCER). Typical initial presentation is a rapidly growing neck mass which upon metastasis is associated with DYSPHAGIA; NECK PAIN; bone pain; DYSPNEA; and NEUROLOGIC DEFICITS.
A condition characterized by shortness of the neck resulting from reduction in the number of vertebrae or the fusion of multiple hemivertebrae into one osseous mass. The hairline is low and the motion of the neck is limited. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
