The effect of yoga as an adjunct to prescribed home-based exercises for chronic non-specific neck pain.
This study aims to determine if yoga and Pilates are effective for chronic non-specific neck pain, when completed as an extra activity along with exercises that are often prescribed by a manual therapist, compared to prescribed exercises only. Outcome measures include pain, quality of life, function and whether prior expectations about the effectiveness of yoga or Pilates or other psychosocial factors determine the outcome.
