The Neck: How Much Do You Know About Neck Pain? - Quiz

Chronic cervical pain is one of the most debilitating conditions a person can experience. Roughly two-thirds of the population will suffer from neck pain at some point in their lives. Most therapists find working with this condition both frustrating and difficult. How much do you know about the relevant anatomy, assessment tests, and effective treatment techniques that can reduce, prevent, and eliminate severe and chronic cervical pain?


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The C4 ligament when injured can cause pain in the neck, scapula, upper arm, and chest?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The C4 ligament is located in the neck, so if it is injured, it would primarily cause pain in the neck area. It is unlikely to cause pain in the scapula, upper arm, and chest as these areas are not directly affected by the C4 ligament. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Pain on active neck testing will help you tell the difference between a muscle injury and a ligament injury?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because pain on active neck testing alone cannot accurately differentiate between a muscle injury and a ligament injury. Both muscle and ligament injuries can cause pain during active neck testing, so additional diagnostic tests and evaluations are necessary to determine the specific type of injury.

    Resisted side flexion of the head to the right primarily tests the ligaments on the right side of the neck for injury.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Resisted side flexion of the head primarily tests the muscles on the right side of the neck for injury, not the ligaments. This test is used to assess the strength and integrity of the muscles involved in side bending the head. Ligaments are not directly involved in this movement and are not specifically tested with this maneuver. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Whiplash is a specific injury.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Whiplash is not a specific injury, but rather a term used to describe a range of neck injuries that occur due to a rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck. It is a common injury that can result from car accidents, sports injuries, or other traumatic events. Whiplash can cause symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness, headaches, and dizziness. Therefore, the given statement is false.
