Study Outcomes & Clinical Relevance: This study was one of the first studies to objectively measure changes in strength and range of motion in patients with non-spinal cord injuries of the cervical spine. Significant gains were seen in strength as well as range of motion and perceived pain was significantly reduced. This study showed that testing and training of the isolated cervical spine is a safe and viable method of clinical assessment and treatment of a variety of cervical spine disorders.
