This comprehensive study delves into the intricate landscape of neck pain, particularly focusing on individuals aged 50 and above, a demographic where this condition is notably prevalent. The global point prevalence of neck pain is documented at 4.9%, positioning it as the fourth leading cause of disability. The disability-adjusted life years associated with neck pain have shown a noteworthy increase from 23.9 million to 33.6 million between 1990 and 2010. To unravel the nuances of this condition, the study employs a robust correlational cross-sectional design and strategically takes place across several esteemed institutions, including the University of Peshawar, Iqra National University, Sarhad University, HMC, and KTH, over a span of six months, from November 2022 to April 2023. The participant pool consists of 200 individuals, revealing a gender distribution of 41 females and 159 males. The findings underscore the substantial impact of neck pain, with a staggering 94% prevalence among the study population. Furthermore, a significant facet explored is scapular dyskinesis, where 74% of individuals exhibit alterations in scapular position and motion patterns during scapulohumeral movements. Importantly, the study establishes a statistically significant association between neck pain and scapular dyskinesis, evidenced by a p-value <0.05. These nuanced insights contribute to a deeper understanding of the complex interplay between neck pain and scapular dyskinesis, offering valuable implications for targeted management and intervention strategies in clinical practice.
