In brief: For home exercises,

I would recommend seeing a physician first to make sure there are no disc problems or other issues.
If it is just sore muscles, i would recommend stretching exercises. See: http://www.Spine-health.Com/conditions/neck-pain/neck-exercises-neck-pain strengthen neck muscles as well as work on posture and desk set up for ergonomic corrections. Hope that helps!
