From: Kinematics of fast cervical rotations in persons with chronic neck pain: a cross-sectional and reliability study

Predictor VIP CI r R2
Car driving (NDI) 1.97 0.94 -.37** 0.14
Running 1.82 1.31 -.35** 0.12
Sleeping disturbances 1.70 0.61 -.29** 0.09
Bodily Pain (SF-36) 1.54 1.00 .26** 0.07
Arm, shoulder or hand pain (DASH) 1.52 1.16 -.25** 0.06
Bending the head to the left 1.39 0.98 -.28** 0.08
Bending the head to the right 1.38 0.98 -.25** 0.06
Pain intensity (NDI) 1.31 0.76 -.21* 0.04
Bending the head backwards 1.26 0.61 -.23* 0.05
Rotating the head to the right 1.17 0.66 -.20* 0.04
Rotating the head to the left 1.13 0.80 -.20* 0.04
  1. Orthogonal Partial Least Squares model for Peak Speed for the neck pain group (n = 118) using self-rated characteristics as predictors. The Variable Influence on Projection (VIP), the lower limit of the confidence interval (CI) for the VIP and Pearson's correlation coefficients (r) are shown for the significant predictors, i.e., with VIP > 1 and a lower limit of VIP CI > 0.5. SF-36: short form-36; DASH: Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand; NDI: Neck Disability Index. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01.
