It is possible to get neck, shoulder, as well as low back pain from sitting at a desk for prolonged periods of time. This is usually due to poor sitting posture. Proper lumbar support will shift your pelvis forward which will correct your sitting posture and help keep your shoulders back. Make sure that your office chair has adequate lumbar support. If your pain does not improve see your md.
