Özet

Objective: Using a cell phone in the head forward posture for a long time is a risk factor for the induction of trigger points (TP) and myofascial pain syndromes (MPS). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between cell phone use-related neck pain and MPS in the trapezius, sternocleidomastoideus and levator scapulae (LS) muscles as well as to determine an appropriate treatment approach.
