  Purpose
Resistance training is widely used in training and rehabilitation. During recent years elastic resistance training has become increasingly popular for preventing or relieving neck/shoulder/arm pain among sedentary employees. While most research studies documenting positive effects of such interventions have used training instructors, most training in practice does not use an instructor but rather depends on information from other sources such as the internet. Here the investigators examine - in a outcome assessor blinded randomized controlled trial - the effect of 2 weeks elastic resistance training for the neck/shoulder/arm with personal versus video instruction on technical execution.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Technical execution [ Time Frame: 2 weeks after randomization ]
    • joint positions will be scored for each individual joint and plane on a 5 point scale according to standard execution according to images
    • a total score (primary outcome) will be calculated by summing scores from each individual joint position


Enrollment: 38
Study Start Date: March 2012
Study Completion Date: June 2012
Primary Completion Date: April 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Video instruction

Participants will receive an elastic resistance tubing, an internet link and a poster with instructions to perform four different elastic resistance exercises Participants are encouraged to perform the exercises daily on weekdays during the next two weeks
