Background: Neck pain is an extremely common musculoskeletal disorder often observed in desk job workers. It's a frequent cause of disability, leading to human suffering and impacting individuals' well-being. The aim of this study was to determine whether Theraband intervention is a useful adjunct to traditional neck pain treatment for people who work desk jobs.

Materials and methods: For a period of six weeks, thirty individuals, aged 25 to 55, were randomized to either the experimental group, which received resistance band exercises in addition to conventional treatment, or the control group, which received only conventional treatment. The Neck Disability Index (NDI), the SF-36, and the Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) were used to measure pain, disability, and quality of life, respectively.

Results: In the 2-way mixed-model ANOVA for neck pain (F = 3.230, df = 1, P =.04) and disability (F = 5.53, df = 1, P =.04), the findings showed a significant group-by-time interaction. In comparison to the Control group, the Experimental group showed a considerably higher improvement in pain and impairment. Additionally, notable distinctions were noted between the two cohorts concerning the aspects of quality of life related to general health, emotional difficulties, emotional well-being, role restrictions resulting from physical health, and physical functioning (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The results revealed that for desk job workers with chronic neck pain, adding Theraband exercises to conventional treatment is more beneficial than using conventional treatment alone in terms of improving pain alleviation, lowering disability, and raising overall quality of life.
