Abstract

Neck pain is one of the most significant health problems worldwide. Non-specific neck pain (NSNP) is the most common and the 4th leading cause of musculoskeletal disorder worldwide. It is estimated that about 70% of the population experiences neck pain throughout the life, with an annual incidence of 15% to 50% [1]. It has been well established that NSNP is not only the risk factor for developing severe spinal pathologies and functional disability but that it is also associated with decreasing the quality of life and productivity of workers [2].

Keywords: Neck Pain; Joint Position Sense (JPS); Joint Position Error (JPE)
