Welcome everyone to our website about the assessment of the cervical spine!

The goal of this website is to guide you through the assessment procedure of the cervical spine, including special tests based on the best available evidence. As there are many special tests out there and only little or no information is given on their quality, it is important to educate novice physiotherapists on high quality tests. Furthermore, standardized protocols are a crucial aspect in order to correctly apply and interpret these tests. This website primarily intends to educate you on the best special tests, their quality, indication, execution and interpretation of outcome. Finally it explains when to use these tests in the overall diagnostic process and provides information about their recommended use.

Additional information about the anatomy of the cervical spine and general examination are also provided.
