Objectives The aim of this study is to develop diagnostic and assessable questionnaires for cervical movement system impairment syndromes. Methods We reviewed the previous study and literature, and organized various checkable items for differential diagnosis of four different cervical movement system impairment syndromes. Next, we selected items which can be developed as questionnaire items. Finally, we conducted a face validity study with twelve Korean medical doctors and carried out survey research to evaluate the importance score of the items with three experts. Results We developed a diagnostic and assessable questionnaire as follows: 9 items for cervical extension syndrome; 5 items for cervical flexion syndrome; 9 items for cervical rotation syndrome. By conducting 2 rounds of survey research, we were able to bridge the differences in the importance score of each item. Conclusions A questionnaire for the diagnosis and assessment of movement system impairment syndromes was developed. This questionnaire holds promising applications for objective diagnosis and assessment of cervical movement system impairment syndromes. This tool may also be used for detecting the sub-health status of musculoskeletal systems.
