Abstract

Despite the evidence of the cervical musculoskeletal dysfunction in migraine linked with the chance of these changes influence on cervical motor control and muscular activity, based on the central sensitization and on the trigeminocervical convergence, there is a lack on the literature of the cervical motor control and strength in migraine population. Besides, functional dysfunction and reduced quality of life are more accentuated in chronic migraine. Therefore, we aim to evaluate the maximal strength of cervical flexors and extensors and the muscular activation pattern during the cervical movements and during the craniocervical flexion test in healthy individuals and in those with migraine and chronic migraine. Also, we aim to investigate if there is correlation of these motor control variables with headache characteristics, as frequency and pain intensity, migraine related impact and time, in years, with migraine. The motor control variables will be related with thermal sensibility, severity of cervical dysfunction and severity of temporomandibular dysfunction too. For this purpose, 20 subjects in each group will be evaluated. The maximal cervical strength will be measured by a load cell apparatus, which reliability will be assess ealier; muscular activity pattern will be verified by surface electromyography with the TrignoTM Wireless System, during the craniocervical flexion test and the assessment of the flexion, extension, lateral flexion and cervical rotation with the Cervical Range of Motion device. Migraine related impact will be assessed by the Brazilian version of the Migraine Disability Assessment, cervical dysfunction will be quantified by the Brazilian version of the Neck Disablity Index, thermal sensibility will be quantified with the Quantitative Sensory Test and the temporomandibular dysfunction severity will be assessed by the Fonseca´s Anamnesic Index. This project will be send to local Ethics Committee for approval and the outcomes will be evaluated by the Quantitative Methods Center.
