Tips to Decrease Neck Pain with Computer Usage

1. Make sure your computer screen is at eye level so you do not have to look up or down for a long period of time.

2. Be at a comfortable distance from your computer so you can see the screen clearly. If not, you will flex your neck forward causing strain to the area.

3. Place your mouse in front of your dominant arm at a position where your elbow and shoulder are at rest. Avoid placing your computer on a table that is too high, this will elevate your shoulder causing strain to the area.

If you continue to have neck discomfort, contact Harbor Physical Therapy for an evaluation of your sitting posture and treatment.
