In a nutshell: In this study, 20 people with neck pain and 20 people without (the control group), each consisting of over 65s from the community, were tested for various sensorimotor functions. Those with neck pain were found to function worse in the tests after controlling for effects of age and comorbidities, which may mean information from the cervical spine may be altered going to the body. These findings may inform falls prevention and management programmes.
