|Purpose：The purpose of this study was to investigate effects of therapeutic exercise on the grip strength of chronic neck pain patients. Methods：Sixteen chronic neck pain patients were recruited this study(8 females. 8 males) from 21 to 30 years of age(mean aged 24.44). The experimental group received contraction-relax exercise for more than 3-5 times with therapeutic massage for 15minutes per day and three times a week during 5 weeks period. Grip strength was measured by Grip Strength Dynamometer (Model: T.K.K, 5101, Japan) at pre, 3weeks, 5weeks and follow-up 2weeks. Statistical analysis was used repeated ANOVA to know difference within period. Results：The grip strength was significantly increased within treatment period(p<.05), among them significantly increased within pre-treatment and follow-up 2weeks(p＜.05). Conclusion：These results indicate that therapeutic exercise increased grip strength of chronic neck pain patients. Grip strength was more increased at follow-up 2weeks. In the future, we suggest that studies of therapeutic exercise regarding chronic neck pain patient be further studied and an appropriate therapeutic exercise will be indicated.
