Abstract

Intro. Neck pain is classified as the second most common musculoskeletal disorder. Neck pain often affects the functional capacity of the individual and sometimes leads to persistent symptoms. There is a correlation between neck pain and decreased strength and endurance in the neck muscles. Purpose. The aim of this study was to investigate a muscular endurance training program in patients with non-specific neck pain and its effects on muscular endurance, pain and function. Method. A SSED, A-B design, was used in this study. Five participants were included in the study. Baseline measurements were performed for six weeks and then intervention for another six weeks. The participants were tested for muscular endurance in the neck, estimated pain and function. They daily trained muscular endurance strength with a strict progression. Results. The result showed an effect with increased muscular endurance for the neck flexors in participants one, two, three and four. Effect could be shown with increased muscular endurance for the neck extensors in participants one, three and four. In terms of reduced pain, participant two and four showed an effect after intervention. Weak effect were shown for participants one, three and five. Effect with improved function were shown in participants two, four and five. Participant one showed a weak effect and no effect for participant three. Conclusion. This SSED indicate that the specific intervention might be consider as a treatment in patient with non-specific neck pain.
