A quasiexperimental study was conducted to evaluate the effect of a workplace gymnastics exercise program for all students in the fourth year of a dental school in Lima to reduce the prevalence of neck pain. The program lasted six weeks, consisted of two talks to perform stretching gymnastics exercises for 5 minutes 3 times per day and a daily reminder by text message. 31 students were assessed at the beginning and end of the intervention, 13/31 they said they had not done the exercises. It was found that the prevalence of neck in the previous 4 weeks was reduced from 90,3 % to 71,0 % (p = 0,034) and the intensity of pain was reduced from 5,4 to 3,6 (p = 0,009). The program was shown to reduce neck pain, future interventions should seek alternatives to increase adherence.Acceso abierto
