Anytime that you sit at a computer desk for more than a few hours, and these days a lot of us do both at home and at work, we have to make sure that the desk is set up properly or else we will start to experience back and neck pain. Merely trying to make sure that we're sat correctly isn't enough though, and we also have to make sure that the desk and keyboard itself are also setup as we need them to be.

One of the main issues, especially when regarding working in an office is that a desk might be setup for another person, so before we start work, we should make sure that we position things the way that we want them, and don't just sit down and start working. Short term neck and back pain can often lead to long term issues so while it might seem trivial now, you'll be thankful in later life.

I am also suffering from the same problem, it causes due to bad posture while working on computer, it could further change to neurological issue. So, better to take proper treatment early. You can get an X-ray to see whether it is just a outer pain or damaged from inside, if so then you can't go for physiotherapy like treatments, because it damages the spine. Treating such conditions earlier could prevent serious issues.

You need some sound advice on how you sit behind your desktop computer. The pain is a result of sustained flexed posture of your neck. Sustained posture interferes with a proper blood supply to your neck muscles resulting in local inflammation and muscle soreness. Have you tried isometric neck exercises. Also, try to change position and move your neck every hour while working.

First, pay attention to your posture. By sitting straight, you put the strain on your muscles, instead of your tendons. It will be difficult at first, but like any exercise, your muscles will adapt and learn to hold that straightened position for progressively longer periods of time.
Second, and this is a rather obvious follow up to the previous point, do exercise those muscles. It will speed up the whole process.

Your head is actually pretty heavy. Somewhere in the ballpark of 10 pounds. Now try doing this: Hold a 10 pound weight straight above your head. Its pretty easy right?

Now hold your arm out at a 45 degree angle. Extremely tiring right? You can feel the muscles in your arm getting exhausted trying to hold the weight up against gravity.

That’s what’s happening to your misaligned neck. It is trying to fight gravity using the muscles in the neck.

Also, misalignment causes nerve impingement, reduced blood flow, and a whole bunch of others things we probably don’t know about.

Then you end up with super stressed out, tight, overactive neck muscles like the Sternocleidomastoid (try saying that 5 times fast…):
