Neck pain from prolonged desk work is commonly attributed to poor ergonomics, muscle strain, and postural issues.

Sitting at a desk for extended periods often involves maintaining a static posture, which can cause neck muscles to tense up and become fatigued.

Poor ergonomics, such as an improperly positioned computer monitor or an uncomfortable chair, can contribute to awkward neck angles and increased strain.

Additionally, staring at a screen for extended periods may lead to “tech neck,” where the neck is bent forward, putting extra pressure on the cervical spine.

Lack of breaks, inadequate stretching, and stress can exacerbate the problem. Engaging in regular breaks, maintaining proper ergonomics, practicing neck exercises, and adopting good posture can help alleviate and prevent neck pain associated with prolonged desk work.

Try these exercises for better neck and upper back health.
