Results of researches indicate prevalence of women neck pain is higher than men, so experiment in neck disease in female is more necessary. The aim of this study is to evaluate changes of postural stability in patient with muscular neck pain. 

Materials & Methods: Twenty patients and fifteen healthy subjects contribute in this study.  Postural sway in quiet standing was assessed in both limb stance (BLS), one limb stance (OLS) of dominant side, on a force platform with open eyes (rigid-open) and standing on a force platform with closed eyes (rigid-closed) and standing on the foam (10.5 cm-thick) with open eyes (foam-open) without shoes. All of above conditions were done with dual task. Mean changes of logarithmic displacement in medial-lateral and for- aft directions were calculated.

 Results: There are significant differences between two groups, especially following dual task, and difficult conditions of OLS and standing on the foam.
