Effectiveness of Pilates along with Conventional Exercise Program and Conventional Exercise Program Alone in Subjects with Text Neck Syndrome

Jill Shah, Krupa Soni


Abstract: Text Neck Syndrome is a commonly found condition in students as they hang their head downwards for a long period of time while using mobile phones. This leads to pain, disability, and reduction in strength and endurance of the cervical muscles. The aim of the study was to find the effectiveness of Pilates versus Conventional Exercise Program in students with Text Neck Syndrome and determine the better of these for benefit of patients. So a Quasi-Experimental study was conducted in which 30 participants with features of text neck syndrome were studied for 6-week intervention. They were divided into 2 groups by convenience sampling: Group A: conventional exercise program and Group B: Pilates along with conventional exercise program. Pre and post-treatment data were collected and analyzed using SPSS 26.0. Paired and unpaired t-test was used to find out the significance of the treatment. A significant improvement in pain, disability, muscle strength, and endurance (p‹0.05) after the treatment was found in both groups. Greater statistical significant improvement was seen in Group B as compared to Group A. Thus the study concluded that Pilates along with conventional exercise program was more effective in treating patients with Text Neck Syndrome.
