Study Design. A prospective randomized clinical trial was conducted. Objective. To evaluate the long-term effects of three training interventions on women with work-related trapezius myalgia. Summary of Background Data. Studies with long-term follow-up evaluation of interventions for neck pain are scarce and usually cover fewer than 12 months. Methods. For this study, 126 women with work-related trapezius myalgia were randomized into strength, muscular endurance, or coordination training or… Expand
Neck muscle training in the treatment of chronic neck pain: a three-year follow-up study.
TLDR
Since a 12-month exercise programme shows a long-term effect, exercise may not need to be performed regularly for the remainder of the subject's life. Expand

TLDR
The results of the six high-quality studies suggest that long- term exercise have long-term benefits for patients with nonspecific neck pain in terms of body function and structure. Expand
EFFECTS OF NECK MUSCLE TRAINING IN WOMEN WITH CHRONIC NECK PAIN: ONE‐YEAR FOLLOW‐UP STUDY
Exercises are commonly recommended for chronic neck pain, but evidence-based guidelines do not explain what types of exercise. The aim of this randomized study was to evaluate the rate of change inExpand
Neck/Shoulder Disorders in a General Population. Natural Course and Influence of Physical Exercise: A 5-Year Follow-up
TLDR
A gender difference was seen in the change of pain and disability, with men having higher improvement than women over 5 years, and self-reported physical exercise of any intensity was not associated with higher recovery in women. Expand
Effects of neck stabilization and dynamic exercises on pain, disability and fear avoidance beliefs in patients with non-specific neck pain; a randomized clinical trial
TLDR
Stabilization exercises alone as well as stabilization plus dynamic or dynamic exercises are effective in patients with NsNP, however stabilization exercises resulted in better reduction in pain intensity, functional disability and fear avoidance beliefs in participants with non-specific neck pain.

Effectiveness of physical and rehabilitation techniques in reducing pain in chronic trapezius myalgia: A systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
No evidence of effective treatment to reduce pain in the intermediate and long term periods is found and the quality of evidence ranged from very poor to poor in short term with acupuncture/dry needling having the largest effect size. Expand
EFFECTS OF TWELVE‐MONTH STRENGTH TRAINING SUBSEQUENT TO TWELVE‐MONTH STRETCHING EXERCISE IN TREATMENT OF CHRONIC NECK PAIN
TLDR
Adding progressive strength training for the second year led to a significant improvement in neck strength and also to a considerable decrease in the pain and disability scores. Expand

TLDR
The authors hypothesize that DL training may be a successful treatment for subjects with LBP of discogenic origin, and investigate the effect of DL training on patients with persistent LBP. Expand

TLDR
No major differences were noted in objective measurements of cervical function between the groups, but the content validity of these assessments in chronic neck trouble can be questioned. Expand
Perceived pain before and after three exercise programs – a controlled clinical trial of women with work-related trapezius myalgia
TLDR
All three exercise programs showed similar decreases of pain which indicates that the type of exercise is of less importance to achieve pain reduction. Expand

TLDR
The type of low-tech dynamic training used in either of the two programmes resulted in both subjective and objective improvements in patients suffering from chronic neck/shoulder pain, but there were no statistically significant differences in outcome between the two approaches. Expand

TLDR
Pain in the neck and shoulder regions disappeared significantly more often just after active treatment as compared to passive treatment, and after 12 months, the incidence of headache was significantly less in the group that had received active physiotherapy. Expand

TLDR

The effect of pain reduction on perceived tension and EMG-recorded trapezius muscle activity in workers with shoulder and neck pain.
TLDR
Improvements were similar in all three treatment groups, but individual-based therapies were rated more beneficial on subjective measures, while the electromyographically recorded upper trapezius muscle activity level remained unchanged or increased. Expand
