Do habits cause your neck pain? – Harvard Health

There are some simple fixes to neck pain causing behaviors. Sitting up straight while working at a desk, on electronic screens or reading books can reduce pain in the neck. Checking the position you are in, raising your neck, propping books up into book holders, or only using electronic devices at eye level are all good techniques to combat temporary or long term pain.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you notice some neck soreness, Dr. Safran-Norton recommends raising your screen or reading material to eye level.
  • Your posture is important, too. If you’re sitting at a desk or a table, sit up straight, with your neck in line with the rest of your spine.
  • If neck pain lasts more than two weeks, Dr. Safran-Norton suggests seeking professional help.

“Sit up straight, keep electronic screens at eye level, and try some strengthening exercises to reduce pain and feel better.”
