In brief: Ergonomics

This is most likely because of your posture when you type.
You should make sure that your workspace is ergonomically correct. Your forearms should be supported, and the keyboard should be at a height that keeps your shoulders relaxed. Your screen should also be at a height that keeps your neck from being in an overly flexed or extended position.
