Hello there.... It is important to make sure that your head is not flexed forward and also that your back is not stooped when you are sitting and working. You should make sure you sit upright.... A firm supporting pillow seems to help some people when sleeping. Try not to use more than one pillow... Chronic neck pain is also sometimes associated with anxiety and depression which may also need to be treated.....
