The best way to avoid neck and shoulder pain is to focus on aligning your head and neck right above your shoulders; avoid straining forward, according to Health. And you should also place your mouse right next to your keyboard to avoid overreaching or to twist your shoulders.

Apart from dealing with your posture, you should also choose the right chair. The chair of your choice will likely dictate the level of comfort and the posture you will be having, which is why you should take a time to choose the best and fitting chair.

While working in front your desktop, you may also try to take some time and have a breathing exercise. Inhale while drawing the navel toward your spine, for it will engage the core muscle and supports of your upper body.

It is also highly suggested that you should sit within reach. Being too far away from your keyboard would mean exerting more effort, and giving more tension to your shoulder muscles. Try to keep a reasonable distance between your body and the keyboard.

Overall, experts would suggest that proper posture is the key to avoiding computer work-related pains. Regardless of the devices that you use, be it a laptop or desktop, you should follow the proper guidelines, which includes sitting up straight with your head level, not bent forward, and the top of your monitor positioned just below eye level.
