Head stabilization is necessary during human locomotion in order to contrubute to perception of a stable visual field. Head stabilization is du to the cooperation between vestibular system and proprioception. According to cranio-corpographic experience Authors used a device based on two accelormeters place, respectevely, on th head and the trunk of the subject. Head stabilization during locomotion have been evaluated in normals and in subjects suffering with neck pain. In normals head is stabilized with respect to the the trunk despite to sensorial condition of locomotion (eg eyes open or closed, firmed or soft surface). In patients affected with neck pain head stabilization is decreased especially in the sagittal plane rather than in frontal plane.
