Abstract

There is currently a lack of information regarding neck muscle activity during specific exercises. The purpose of the present study was to investigate deformation and deformation rate in different layers of dorsal and ventral neck muscles during isometric neck muscle contraction in individuals after anterior cervical decompression and fusion and in healthy controls. This study included 10 individuals (mean age 60 years; SD 7.1) with a verified, long-standing neck disorder and 10 healthy, age- and sex-matched controls. Ultrasonography and post-process speckle tracking analysis was used to investigate the degree and the rate of neck muscles motions at the C4 segmental level during sub-maximal, isometric resistance of the head in a seated position. None of the analyses performed showed significant differences between groups (p > 0.05). In the dorsal muscles, both groups exhibited a higher deformation rate in the multifidus than in the trapezius, splenius, and semispinalis capitis (p ≤ 0.01). In the neck disorder group, the multifidus also showed a higher deformation rate compared to the semispinalis cervicis (p = 0.02). In the ventral muscles of patients with neck disorders, the longus colli had a higher deformation rate than the sternocleidomastoid (p = 0.02). Among the healthy controls, the multifidus showed a higher degree of deformation (p = 0.02) than the trapezius. In conclusion, our results showed no significant differences between the two groups in mechanical neck muscle activation. Larger studies with different exercises, preferably with a standardized measure of resistance, are needed to investigate whether patients and controls show differences in deformation and deformation rates in neck muscles.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. 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 18 June 2012.
All research outputs
#2,671,297
of 5,038,248 outputs
Outputs from Manual Therapy
#657
of 887 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#36,335
of 77,636 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Manual Therapy
#40
of 43 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 5,038,248 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 887 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.5. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
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 77,636 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 43 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 6th percentile – i.e., 6% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
