Written By Health Matters on August 16, 2019

Woman with neck pain Neck pain can range from a mild, nagging ache to persistent pain that extends down the arms or leads to bothersome headaches. There are many culprits of neck pain, but one of the most common is working at a computer day in and day out.

Also, it’s a huge issue. As many as one in every five people might suffer from neck pain, according to a 2017 study published in the Brazilian Journal of Physical Therapy.

Why is Computer Work a Pain in the Neck?

One of the biggest reasons computer work leads to neck pain is that workers tend to adapt to their work station rather than the other way around. If you spend most of your day hunched over or staring down at a screen, it makes sense that you will feel stiff and sore around the neck, shoulders and upper back by the end of the day.

There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of neck pain during work hours:

  • Monitor Height: Position your monitor so it is at eye level

  • Monitor Location: Keep your monitor close enough that you can see it easily

  • Mouse Position: Place your mouse so you don’t have to reach up to use it

  • Chair Height: Adjust your chair to maintain a comfortable height with your desk and monitor

  • Chair Armrests: Make sure you can relax your shoulders while using armrests
