Resumo

BACKGROUND: Baropodometric evaluation has been used in research and clinical environments by professionals who are working on the physical rehabilitation of patients. However, to date, there is no published data on the use of baropodometry in patients with chronic neck pain. OBJECTIVE: To analyze peak plantar pressure and center of pressure oscillation in individuals with chronic neck pain compared to a control group. METHODS: This was a blind cross-sectional study. It included 44 participants of both genders, between 18 and 45 years old, distributed into a chronic neck pain group (n = 22) and a control group (n = 22). Participants were assessed by means of baropodometry, the Numeric Rating Scale, the Neck Disability Index, and the Pain-Related Self Statement Scale. The Mann Whitney test was used for comparison of baropodometric variables between the two groups, and the Spearman correlation coefficient was used to check possible associations between the variables. RESULTS: No significant differences (p > 0.05) in peak plantar pressure or center of pressure oscillation were detected in the comparisons between the chronic neck pain and control groups. In addition, no significant correlation was observed (p > 0.05) between baropodometric variables and neck pain. CONCLUSION: Individuals with chronic neck pain with mild disability did not differ from a control group in terms of peak plantar pressure or center of pressure oscillation. (AU)
