OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the differences in pressure and thermal pain hypersensitivity between patients with acute and chronic neck pain and healthy subjects. METHODS Five patients with acute neck pain, 7 patients with chronic neck pain, and 6 matched controls participated. Pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) were assessed over the supraorbital, infraorbital, mental, median, ulnar, and radial nerves; the C5-C6 zygapophyseal joint; the second metacarpal; and the… CONTINUE READING
