Brief Summary:
Analysis of Abnormal Muscle Activities on Forward Neck Posture Syndrome Patients and Effect of Neck Extension Exercise Using 8 Channel Surface Electromyography

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Neck Syndrome Behavioral: cervical spine extension exercise Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In this study, the investigators investigate the muscle contraction according to posture change in patients with forward neck posture syndrome which was not revealed by 8 channel surface electromyography and provide accurate evaluation of forward neck posture syndrome in comparison with normal group and to be used as basic research data for the development of 8 channel electric stimulation therapy device.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: forward neck posture syndrome patients
Patients diagnosed with forward neck posture syndrome in cervical plain X-ray have a cervical spine extension exercise for 4 weeks
Behavioral: cervical spine extension exercise
cervical spine extension exercise for 4 weeks




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from 8 Channel Surface Electromyography at 4 weeks [ Time Frame: when patient enrolled and after 4 weeks ]
    measure the area and extent of muscle activation around the cervical vertebrae according to posture


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change the angle of cervical vertebrae from plain x-ray at 8 weeks [ Time Frame: when patient enrolled and after 8 weeks ]
    measure the angle of cervical vertebrae
