A helmet is a form of protective gear worn to protect the head from injuries. The word helmet is diminutive from helm, a medieval word for protective combat headgear. Modern helmets are constructed from plastics. Premium price helmets are made with fiber glass reinforced with Kevlar or carbon fiber. They generally have fabric and foam interiors for both comfort and protection. Neck pain is becoming one of the common complaints identified by the helmet users in previous reports. It is due to combined weight of the helmet and their head. Few researchers identified there is no relationship of neck pain with helmets. The purpose of the study is to analyze the relationship between different variables with neck pain among helmet users. A correlative study design with 145 helmet users was randomly selected, self designed questionnaires were distributed to them, around 118 samples were taken for the analysis after due consideration of the selection criteria.
