Class overview

This Masterclass provides an in-depth exploration of both sensorimotor and muscle performance aspects of neck pain. Starting out with a reflection on the role of the human neck in day to day life, and followed by a critique of traditional approaches to neck pain, the evidence underpinning sensorimotor and muscle performance assessment and management is presented along with clinically orientated, practical approaches to rehabilitation of the neck.

1.

Neck pain: assessing sensorimotor impairment

Runtime: 47:30
Open Module

This module presents reflections on the role of the neck in activities of daily living and discusses the evidence underpinning the clinical assessment of proprioception, oculomotor control and postural stability in neck pain. Practical clinically orientated approaches to assessing sensorimotor impairment are described.

2.

Neck pain: managing sensorimotor impairment

Runtime: 25:57
Open Module

This module presents clinically orientated approaches to intervention for impaired proprioception, oculomotor control and postural stability in neck pain. The evidence underpinning intervention in sensorimotor impairment is presented and a pathway from impairment based approaches to neck function is proposed.

3.

Neck pain: assessing muscle performance

Runtime: 46:47
Open Module

This module presents reflections on the multi-dimensional nature of neck muscle performance in the clinical setting. The evidence underpinning the assessment of muscle performance in neck pain is presented. Practical clinically orientated approaches to assessing maximum isometric voluntary contraction, endurance, and specific tests of deep neck flexor and extensor muscle performance are described, emphasising the multi-planar and three dimensional nature of neck motion.

4.

Neck pain: managing muscle impairment

Runtime: 14:02
Open Module

This module presents clinically orientated approaches to intervention for impaired muscle performance in neck pain. The evidence underpinning intervention in muscle performance impairment is presented and a pathway specific to global resistance training is described, including discussion of group-based exercise approaches to neck pain (the ‘Neck Gym’).
