Workplace interventions for neck pain in office workers

...a review of the evidence about their efficacy

This review aimed to investigate the effectiveness of workplace-based interventions on the prevention and reduction of neck pain in office workers.

From the articles included in this review, the authors concluded that workplace-based neck and shoulder strengthening exercises, as well as general fitness training, showed moderate quality evidence of being effective in reducing neck pain in office workers.

Effect sizes were larger for strengthening exercises and were proportional to adherence. The efficacy of ergonomic interventions was only supported by low-quality evidence.
