Abstract

Introduction: Neck disorders remain a common problem in modern world. Patients with chronic neck pain uses health care services twice as much as the population on average. The origin of neck pain can be multifactorial. Aim and objectives: To determine whether only neck muscle isometrics or neck along with shoulder muscle isometrics are more effective in relieving chronic neck pain. Methodology: 30 female subjects with mean age 20.23±1.96 yrs, have been included in the study as the sample size with 10 equal subjects assigned to each group with mean age of 20.5±2.20 in group A, 19.8±1.37 in group B, 20.4±2.24 in group C as per inclusion criteria via random sampling method. Conclusion: Results of the study shows that pain & strength of neck muscles were improved in the subjects with neck pain individually in all the groups but does not show any significant improvement among the groups. Thus, neck pain can be reduced after training periods of neck muscles and shoulder muscles with intensive strength.
