Core and scapular stability exercises for neck pain

Do they help in improving neck pain and posture?

Recent literature has established that a forward head posture contributes to headaches, neck pain, and associated cervical spine degeneration.

Often physiotherapy treatment focuses on passive management, along with cervical spine flexor training and scapular stability exercises to address pain and associated forward head posture of the neck.

The authors of this article hypothesised that adding in extra core stability exercises to the programme would yield better outcomes with cervical pain as well as posture.
