Brief Summary:
Neck pain is a very common problem in the population. Most of the patients suffer from neck pain for long time and the problem becomes chronic. The investigators studied the effects of scapular stabilization exercise on mechanical neck pain.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neck Pain Other: classical approach for neck pain Other: scapular exercise on neck pain Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Neck is one of the most common musculoskeletal problem in the world. Yet the problem still haven't been understood and solved completely. Its incidence is also becoming higher and most people who have neck pain suffer from it for long time. Several problems have been related to neck pain. Hence, the investigators designed a study to see the effects of scapular stabilization exercise on neck pain.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: classical approach for neck pain
patients in this arm received classical approaches for neck pain. Cervical manual therapy was performed on patients in this arm and they were also instructed to to perform cervical endurance, strength and stretching exercises. Rehabilitation period was lasted for 6 weeks. Pain, quality of life and scapular kinematics were assessed before and after rehabilitation program.
Other: classical approach for neck pain
Patients with mechanical neck pain were instructed to do cervical exercise
Experimental: scapular exercise on neck pain
patients in this arm received cervical manual therapy and cervical exercises too. Apart from cervical manual therapy and cervical exercises,patients also performed scapular stabilization exercise targeting trapezius, serratus anterior and rhomboid muscles. Rehabilitation period was lasted for 6 weeks. The same assessment parameters was conducted on this arm too.
Other: scapular exercise on neck pain
Patients with mechanical neck pain were instructed to do scapular stabilization and cervical exercise



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Neck pain measured with Visual Analog Scale [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Patient's neck was measured with Visual Analog Scale


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality of Life measured with Neck Disability Index [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Patient's quality of life was measured with Neck Disability Index

  2. Scapular Kinematics measured with 3-D motion monitor device [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Patient's scapular kinematics was measured with 3-D motion monitor device
