Objective: To investigate the effect of 12 weeks of neck stabilization, central and combined stability exercises on pain and disability of non-specific chronic neck pain among elderly people in Tehran.
Methods: This study was a 12 weeks open-label clinical trial. 18 elderly patients with chronic neck pain were randomly assigned into three groups: neck firmness training (6 people), central stability training (6 people) and combined training (6 people). The severity of neck pain and disability before the beginning of the training, at the end of the 8 weeks and one week after the completion of the exercises Were measured using the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Neck Disability Index (NDI) and Neck Pain and Disability Scale (NPDI). To investigate the effect of time, repeated measure analysis of variance (RMANOVA) was used to analyze the data in SPSS version 21.
 
Results: The mean score of pain at before and after in neck stability treatment group using VAS, NDI and NPDI indices was 6.08± 0.58, 4.83± 0.52 and 49.17± 2.86, 39.17± 2.79, and 56.42±2.11, 50.03± 1.64, respectively that difference between pairs was significance. The mean score of pain at before and after in central stabilization treatment group using VAS, NDI and NPDI indices was 6.00± 0.55, 4.92± 0.20 and 49.67±1.86, 39.17±1.94, and 56.01± 2.44, 48.92± 1.16, respectively that difference between pairs was significance. Also The mean score of pain at before and after in combined stabilization treatment group using VAS, NDI and NPDI indices was 6.00± 0.45, 4.00± 0.32 and 49.83± 2.23, 37.17± 2.86, and 55.25±0.28, 47.51± 1.44, respectively that difference between pairs was significance (P <0.05).Among the underlying variables of gender (F=6.21, P=0.02), there was a significant effect on pain relief in the elderly, while other variables were not significant as pain relief (P> 0.05).
 
Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that 12 sessions of cervical, central and combined stability training in the neck region could improve the tolerance and pain of the elderly with Non-specific chronic neck pain.
