Abstract

Purpose: Increased forward head angle causes neck pain. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of traditional and National Academic of Sport Medicine (NASM) corrective exercises on the neck pain and forward head angle in college male students. Methods: Twenty male with forward head were selected within male students, and randomly divided into 2 groups (n=10 rats per group): Both groups performed traditional and NASM corrective exercises. First group performed traditional exercises and the second group performed NASM corrective exercises for 8 weeks that related to the forward head practices. Angle of head pain and head pain were measured by pain Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) and goniometer before and after the training period. Data were analyzed by paired t-test and independent t-test in PResults: The result of this study showed significant differences between pre and post-intervention conditions regarding the VAS, and head angle values in both groups (P<0/05). There is a significant difference between groups in pain scale VAS and head angle before and after the training period that the rate of healing in NASM group is higher than in the traditional group. Conclusion: NASM corrective exercises was more effective in improvement of the pain scale and head angle and it is recommended to the occupational therapist to the benefits of these exercises as a modern training methods in correction of the forward head angle.
