      <ArticleTitle>Impact of home exercise prescription using self- logging smartphone application on neck pain among collegiate students</ArticleTitle>
      <Abstract>Non- specific neck pain is the pain in the anatomical region of the neck in which it is quite not possible to identify the exact cause. Neck pain is continuous or repeated occurring in all age groups. The aim of this study is to analyze the usage of self-logging smartphone applications as a home exercise program in a group of Collegiate students. These applications designed to train are expected to be beneficial to that particular population as long as the demonstrations are in the form of visual feedback. Based on pre-and post-type Experimental design, A total number of 40 students with neck pain were selected, according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Among them, Group A is considered as an experimental group and Group B is considered as a control group. For the Experimental group, intervention is given for 3 weeks 4 days per week. Visual analogue scale (VAS) and Neck Pain Disability Index Questionnaire (NPDIQ) are used to assess outcome measures. Based on the measures, the study shows that the VAS and NPDIQ are statistically significant for both the experimental and control group by p</Abstract>
