Cervical Joint Position Error (JPE), cervical kinesthetic sense, Cervical Joint Position Error Test (Cervical JPET)
What it measures:
Joint position error (JPE) of the cervical spine is typically measured using a reposition-to-neutral test. In truth, “joint” position error includes input from not only joint receptors but also muscles, tendons, capsules, and skin. (Strimpakos et al, 2011)
This test summary contains information on use of this test in patients or clients with cervicogenic headaches (CGH). The JPE test is not intended to be a diagnostic test for CGH, but could reflect deficits in body function for people with CGH.
