Hi and thanks for the query

I am Dr. Alok and very pleased to be assisting you with your health questions today.

This is a very common problem among computer users, you need to modify or change your computer workstation with the help of occupational therapist or do it by yourself. You can take help from OSHA website.
for neck pain and stiffness, you need to do some changes in lifestyle
- take rest for 5 minutes after every 30 minutes,
- do regular neck exercise,
- while working, try to keep your neck and back in resting position
- sometime a soft neck coller may help
If require, you can take over the counter available painkiller ointment or paracetamol

Hope this helps and provides answers to your question.
If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to ask me again
I wish you good health, take care
