In brief: Stretching

It sounds as though you have sprained the rhomboid muscles.
These support your shoulder blade and can be strained if you have been doing pull ups; sitting for long periods of time typing with your arms held out in front of you. Sometimes this pain is due to a nerve in your neck being pinched. Most likely it is musclular, and stretching along with stopping the source will help.

In brief: NoUniversal exercise

Best thing you can do is get a direct evaluation by a physiatrist, pain physician, or orthopedic/sports doc.
A diagnosis of what is causing the pain is needed in order to tailor a specific exercise/ therapy program, which may or may not be warranted based on the pathology/injury causing your pain. No exercise program is universal for "back pain" & needs to be structured to fit your specific cause.
