Abstract

Purpose: Primarily to compare the upper limb proprioception in chronic mechanical neck pain patients to age - sex matched normals.

Method: 30 women, 19- 30 years of age were assessed via a digital inclinometer for repositioning error for shoulder, elbow and wrist joints.

Results: It was found that there was a difference in upper limb proprioception in chronic mechanical neck pain patients as compared to age sex matched normal individuals.

Conclusion: On comparison, individuals with chronic mechanical neck pain had a statistically significant difference in the shoulder and wrist proprioception as compared to age matched normals.
