Abstract: Study design -case control study. Objectives are To study scapular position in computer professionals with neck pain and without neck pain. To compare scapular position in computer professionals with and without neck pain Background Abnormal or altered scapular position is defined as an observable alteration in the position and motion of the scapula relative to the thoracic cage. Poor postural habits and neck pain are increasingly common among individuals who work predominately on computer. Methods and measures An case control study with convenience sampling was done with 100 subjects. Each subject Scapular protraction measurements were taken with the participant standing with normal, relaxed posture. The measurements were performed at 3 different positions ( at rest, hands on hip, and 900 glenohumeral abduction). First the inferior angle of scapula was palpated and marked, then the lateral arm of the vernier caliper was then positioned at the corresponding spinous process, and the measurement was recorded. All measurements were taken bilaterally. Also scapular upward rotation was measured with the help of baseline digital inclinometer at rest, 60 and 90 degree glenohumeral abduction. Results The results showed that there is a significant difference in scapular position and in computer professionals with neck pain. conclusion In the present study it was concluded that scapular position is altered which includes altered scapular protaction and upward roation in computer professionals who are suffering from neck pain in all three positions that is at rest, hands on hip, and 90 degree glenohumeral abduction and in scapular upward rotation.
