  4. 4. Neck Pain : Analysis of Prognostic Factors and Treatment Effects

    Författare :Görel Kjellman; Charlotte Ekdahl; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Neck pain is a highly prevalent and often long-lasting problem with substantial personal and economic consequences. Individuals with neck pain are often referred for physiotherapy treatment, but there is limited evidence of the effect of treatment in these patients, mainly because conservative interventions have not been studied in sufficient detail.
