Abstract:
Background: Tension neck syndrome is a disorder of neck and shoulder area are involved, also called Cervicobrachial. Goldsmith workers are used to working for long time with cross legged posture in their workstation.
Objective: This study was to find out the effectiveness of Swiss ball training exercises for tension neck syndrome among goldsmith workers using Swiss ball.
Methodology: The study design was Quasi experimental and the study type is pre and post test with twenty samples with age 30-45 years males with minimum six month of experience as Goldsmith workers with neck pain. Subjects are excluded who has any spinal deformity, vertebral fracture, trauma, etc., The goldsmith workers working in their workstation has only one group using Swiss ball. Neck disability index should be used to select the patient who have pain with limited movements in the neck. At pretest and post-test, the pain was assessed by using VAS(Visual Analog Scale) and the limitation of movements should be assessed by the using Goniometer by Observing the range of motion.
Outcome Measures: Numeric pain rating scale, Range of motion, Neck disability index(NDI)
Results: The data analysis reviewed that there is decreases in pain and stiffness using Swiss ball training exercises, this showed better results, therefore it is significant.
Conclusion: Strengthening the deep flexor muscles of the neck for stabilization using Swiss ball exercises was effective at reducing pain and stiffness.

Keywords: Neck Disability Index(NDI), Tension Neck Syndrome, Goldsmith Workers, Goniometer.

I. INTRODUCTION
