ScoreCategoryTotal (n = 43)SexAge (years)PainStiffnessRestriction*
M (n = 22)<30 (n = 29)V<5 (n = 20)V<5 (n = 12)V<4 (n = 9)

For each subscale, a comparison of scores is made for the groups subdivided according to sex, age, pain score, stiffness, and restriction of neck range. Significant score anomalies are given in bold (t test: p<0.05). See the text for the definition of what is measured by each subscale of the FSR, SF36, and EDLQ. The subscale scores are compared with each other (that is, male sex scores v female sex scores) by t test, and with available normative data for a German population.
*Restriction of motion.
