Table 2 Between groups differences for pain intensity, neck disability and muscle endurance tests

From: The relationship between cervical flexor endurance, cervical extensor endurance, VAS, and disability in subjects with neck pain

Characteristic Acute/subacute pain (n = 13) Chronic pain (n = 17) p
VAS, X(SD)* 41.23 (24.48) 33.18 (23.23) 0.36
NPDS-I, X(SD)* 34.46 (17.64) 49.44 (15.01) 0.01
NFME test, mo (range)a** 44 (27–60) 30 (23.5-61.5) 0.50
NEE test, X(SD)* 261.92 (137.46) 235.12 (162.13) 0.63
  1. Differences between groups were analyzed with a Student unpaired t test* or a Mann–Whitney U test** as appropriate.
  2. aMeasures with a non-Gaussian distribution are expressed as median and interquartile range (25th-75th).
