The purpose of our study; to determine the effectiveness of video based and brochure home exercise program on pain, kinesiophobia, quality of life, physical activity and depression level in neck pain associated with cervical disc hernia. For this purpose, 82 patients with neck pain due to cervical disc hernia were included
in the study. Brochure home exercise was given to Group 1 and video home exercise program was given to Group 2. Superficial heat, Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), and therapeutic ultrasound were applied to both groups for 20 sessions.
Patients were evaluated for pain severity, range of motion, muscle strength, quality of life, level of kinesiophobia, level of depression, neck pain and disability and physical activity level before and at the end of the 8th week.Pain severity with visual analog scale, range of motion with goniometer, muscle strength with manual muscle test, quality of life-related health-related quality of life scale, kinesiophobia level tampa kinesiophobia scale, depression level beck depression, neck pain and disability The disability scale and physical activity level
were assessed by the short form of the international physical fitness scale.
“Paired Sample T Test” was used to evaluate the differences in the group. Positive changes were observed in pain severity, range of motion range, quality of life, level of kinesiophobia, level of depression, neck pain and disability and physical activity levels in Group 1 and Group 2. When the difference between groups was evaluated with “Indepented Sample T Test”, a significant difference was observed in all parameters except muscle strength (p <0.05). As a result of this study, it was found that the exercises given to the scapula and its
surroundings together with the cervical region, in the treatment of neck pain due to cervical disc hernia, are more functional in terms of function, and these exercises will be learned more easily by patients.
