Abstract Introduction. Restricted range of cervical motion (ROM), decreased pressure pain thresholds (PPTs) and hypersensitive responses to the brachial plexus provocation test (BPPT) are features of chronic whiplash associated disorders (WAD). It is not known if these physical measures are related to self reported pain and disability. The aim of this study was to examine the relationships between ROM, PPT and responses to the BPPT with self reported pain and disability in subjects with chronic WAD.
