Volunteers wanted for neck pain and posture study

Thursday, 17 August 2017

Researchers at the University of Newcastle (UON) are calling for volunteers with chronic non-traumatic neck pain to take part in a study on posture and the use of electronic devices.

This UON-based project will investigate the differences in posture when people use electronic devices (desktop and laptop computers and tablets).

Based at the University of Newcastle, the study will require participants to attend the School of Health Sciences Motion Analysis Laboratory in the Hunter Building for a one-off, 45 minute session.

Any adult with neck pain is invited to participate, so long as the neck pain has not been caused by a trauma such as a car accident.

The study will investigate reasons as to why people may experience neck pain, by seeking to identify contributing factors leading to pain.
