Values are presented as mean±standard deviation.

Group A: neck pain with tenderness group, group B: neck and shoulder pain with tenderness group.

NDI: neck disability index, ROM: range of motion, ESWT: extracorporeal shock wave therapy.

*Internal rotation: Vertebral spinous process level that could be reached with the tip of the patient’s thumb and was converted into continuously numbered groups: T1.12 to 1.12, L1.5 to 13.17, and buttock to 18; Statistically significant, p<0.05.
