Brief Summary:

Purpose: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of two different home exercise methods on exercise compliance, neck pain and neck disability in individuals with neck pain.

Material and metods: The study, carried out between February 2018 and May 2018 at Istanbul Arel University Vocational School, was performed with 60 people aged 25-60 years who were suffering from neck pain in academic and administrative staff. The cases were randomly divided into two groups. In Group 1, the case was given home exercise method (B.M.E.Y) with printed materials whereas Group 2 was given exercise with home exercise method (V.H.E.Y) with video phone reminder. Pain intensity was evaluated before and after exercise with 'Visual Analog Scale' (VAS), whereas the level of neck disability was evaluated before and after exercise with 'Neck Pain and Disability Score' (NPDS). The obtained results were analyzed using appropriate statistical methods.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neck Pain Exercise Training Other: Group 1 (printed materials) Other: Group 2 (video phone reminder) Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Both groups were prescribed the same type of exercise, duration of exercise and number of repetitions. group 1 completed the exercise program and marked the exercise attendance schedule. At the end of the program, these charts were collected from the subjects and the continuity was evaluated. The group marked the exercises completed with 2 phone app. In the program used, exercise continuity of the cases was evaluated as days.

Exercises were given at least 3 times a week for 10 weeks and 1 set per day for a total of 6 weeks. individuals; normal joint movement exercises; neck flexion, lateral flexion, rotation, extension and retraction movements, isometric exercises; neck flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation movements and stretching exercises; neck lateral flexion, neck rotation and flexion movements were given.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neck disability [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Self reported. The level of neck disability was evaluated before and after exercise with 'Neck Pain and Disability Score' . Each question is measured on a scale from 0 (no disability) to 5, and an overall score out of 100 is calculated by adding each item score together.

  2. Pain intensity [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Self reported pain intensity .. Pain intensity was evaluated before and after exercise with 'Visual Analog Scale'. Each item scored is 0-10 (0=no pain 10=pain as bad as can be)
