In brief: Ergonomics
Arrange computer station to minimize strain: monitor straight ahead or slightly below line of sight; keyboard at proper height; forearms supported; comfortable, adjustable chair. Take breaks to stretch & exercise neck & shoulder muscles.
Use tylenol/nsaid judiciously. Moist heat to neck & shoulders. Neck massage by trained person (some even come to workplace).
