Neck pain is a common global problem, an important source of disability. To control head movements in relation to the rest of the body is the functional task of the cervical spine. Bad posture of neck with respect to chest is one of the commonest causes of chronic neck pain. This is common to the job related (e.g. computer professionals, clerks, bank employees) where the neck is kept in a flexed position for long periods of time. Sitting at desk hunched over computer keyboard can be a major cause of neck pain and neck problems. When combined with the fact that many people with desk jobs spend most of their time sitting without moving for hours at a time, it's no surprise that desk jobs are associated with increased instances of neck pain. By implementing a few self-help techniques, may be able to reduce neck pain, improve mobility in cervical spine and prevent the development of certain neck problems.
