Abstract

Neck Pain is a very common musculoskeletal condition that is becoming a major cause of concern not only in
adults but also in the younger population. The aim of the study is to find out if providing static neck exercises has
any effect on reducing neck pains. The study comprised of 40 participants which included both males and females
of ages 14-19 years having mechanical neck pain. A baseline assessment was carried out using NPRS and NDI
scales to select participants for the study. Once participants met the inclusion criteria, they were given static neck
exercises for 1 month (three days in a week: 2 sets with 10 repetitions each). Later, post NPRS and NDI readings
were collected and compared with the pre NPRS and NDI readings to find any changes in neck pain. Both pain
and neck disability had shown statistical changes when pre and post readings of NPRS and NDI were compared.
Hence, this study has shown that static neck exercises, are effective means of reducing neck pains.
Keywords: mechanical neck pain; static neck exercise; school students; NPRS; NDI.
