Correlation among Cervical Pain, Neck Disability Index and Health Related Quality of Life for Subjects Suffering from Cervical Pain of Age Group 20 to 75 Years
1. To evaluate neck pain, neck disability and quality of life of patients with cervical pain
2. To find correlation between pain, disability and quality of life
1. Visual analogue scale (VAS) for pain
2. Neck disability index for evaluating disability
3. Rand shortform-36 for health related Quality of life
Methodology: Approx. 50 patients of age group 20-75 years with cervical pain were included in the study. This study is based on observation. Data was collected from G.B..Pant Hospital , Delhi, various clinics and from general population on the basis of inclusion criteria. After rapport building, subjects were evaluated for pain, disability and quality of life for functional outcomes. After data collection, correlation between the three scales was established and data was analyzed statistically by using correlation Regression.
1. Increase in cervical pain will lead to decrease in quality of life in all different domains
2. Disability is directly correlated to quality of life
