Assessing and treating patients with neck pain is far from straightforward. Neck injuries can cause an array of issues beyond pain and range of motion deficits, including sensorimotor impairments and changes in muscle performance. This case study provides a model assessment of a 22-year-old male patient who has chronic neck pain. Chris Worsfold explores all the aspects of the assessment from balance to vision and muscle performance as part of the differentiating diagnosis for this patient’s chronic neck pain and then discusses potential treatment options.


This course aims to provide you with an example of how a neck pain assessment can be structured, from subjective assessment through to objective tests and potential treatment options.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
