Abstract|ملخص البحث

Cervical proprioception is very important for optimal neck performance in sports. Cervical muscles have numerous connections with vestibular, visual and higher centres and interactions with these can produce effective proprioceptive input. Dysfunction of cervical proprioception because of different sports injuries need to be evaluated. Common tests used in the evaluation of cervical proprioception include head reposition accuracy (HRA) tests. HRA tests commonly undertaken are repositioning to the neutral head position and repositioning into target head position. Cervical range of motion device is an effective, easy and convenient tool to measure cervical proprioception. This information should assist sports physiotherapists and health care providers who deal with cervical injuries in sports or any neck conditions.
