-Key principles of evidence based therapeutic exercise for neck pain disorders.
-Presentation of the overall management of patients with neck pain disorders

Studies have documented various impairments in neuromuscular function of the cervical spine in people with neck pain. These changes in muscle behaviour are known to appear early after the onset of neck pain and do not automatically reverse over time in the absence of specific training interventions.

Such knowledge highlights the need for rehabilitation programs to incorporate training to address neuromuscular control as part of the overall management of a patient with neck pain. Contemporary exercise programs include a progressive range of specific exercises for the neck muscles which are based on precise movement analysis and muscle testing.

Relevant to clinical practice, such specific exercise programs to retrain muscle function in patients with neck pain have shown favourable responses in terms of improvements in pain, disability, and function. This approach to therapeutic exercise for the management of neck pain disorders will be presented within this clinical workshop.
