Aim: To analyze the neuromotor control and the neck muscle endurance among the student population.

Background Of The Study: Recent studies shows that poor posture habits causes the neck muscles to continuously overwork to counterbalance the pull of gravity causing imbalance between the agonist and antagonist.

Materials And Method: The study design is observational study. Female subjects within the age group of 18-25 years were included and Subjects with migraine, tension type headache and neck pain were excluded from the study. After getting consent from the 100 samples, CCFT and julls test were performed.

Conclusion: The study revealed that there is reduced neck muscle endurance and motor control among the subjects.
