The specific aims are as follows:
- To investigate the degree of impairment, such as range, proprioception, sensation, and electromyography (EMG) pattern of healthy, older subjects.
- To investigate the relationship of these impairment measurements, the functional outcome and disability in patients with cervical spondylosis.
- To develop an exercise program with an emphasis on proprioception, stability and coordination for patients with neck-shoulder complaints to decrease the impairment and increase the functions of patients.
