Jyoti Dahiya [3] | Savita Ravindra

Abstract: Present study comprises cross sectional study design. Primary objectives of study were to study the effect of neck pain on scapular position in computer professionals and to compare scapular position in computer professionals with and without neck pain. Background atypical scapular position is defined as visible difference in the static position and dynamic motion of the scapula with respect to thoracic spine. Faulty postural habits especially during working and prevalence of neck pain are enhanced among individuals who work predominately in front of computer/ screen. Methods and measures A cross sectional study was performed with convenience sampling among 100 subjects. Further scapula position was assessed using kiblers scapula assessment method at three different positions. Vernier caliper was used for the examination of distance from inferior border of scapula and its corresponding spinous process. Further scapula upward rotation measurements were performed using baseline digital inclinometer at four positions i.e. at rest, at 60 degrees abduction, 90-degree abduction and 1200 degree abduction Results The results exhibit significant observable changes in scapula protraction as well as scapula upward rotation among computer professionals having neck pain as compared to those who were not having neck pain.
