Abstract

To determine, whether 3-months of neck-specific exercises could benefit individuals with chronic whiplash-associated disorders (WAD) who were on a waiting list for treatment. A prospective, randomized controlled study SETTING: Primary health care PARTICIPANTS: 41 individuals (31 women, 10 men; mean age=38 y, SD=11.2) with chronic (6 to 36 months) WAD, grades 2 and 3, were analyzed. Patients were randomized to neck-specific exercises (NSE) or no treatment for 3 months. Neck-specific disability (Neck Disability Index; NDI), neck pain (Visual Analogue Scale), general pain-related disability (Pain Disability Index; PDI), self-perceived performance ability (the Self-Efficacy Scale; SES), and health-related quality of life (EuroQol five dimensions; EQ-5D) were measured. NSE significantly improved the NDI, SES, and EQ5D compared to waiting list (<0.01). There was significant improvement (p<0.0001) over time in all outcomes for NSE, and, apart from the PDI, significant worsening (p=0.002 to 0.0002) over time for the untreated group. NSE were more beneficial than no intervention while on a waiting list for individuals with chronic WAD.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 8. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 February 2016.
All research outputs
#977,735
of 7,669,626 outputs
Outputs from Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
#380
of 2,664 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#41,296
of 241,116 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Archives of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
#10
of 42 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 7,669,626 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 87th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,664 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 241,116 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 42 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 76% of its contemporaries.
