Since you are an IT professional, the pain is very common. Confirming your neck pain as CS or due to some other reason will require (a) Imaging (X-ray or MRI) ; (b) Therapeutic Tests. since those are not possible via the current medium. therefore i request you to visit nearest Occupational Therapy Provider / workspace ergonomist / physiotherapist. There are few Tips That can prevent the pain: 1> Take Intermediate rests after 40-45 minutes of work (a.k.a. micro-breaks) 2> Adjust your work place properly working in an ergonomic setting reduces neck and shoulder pain by 80-90% in professionals working with computers. (consult your Occupational therapist for the same) 3> while using mobile devices keep it up 4> Correct your posture by simply standing besides a wall with heel, hips, shoulder blades, and straight bony part of head touching the wall for atleast 5 minutes. at starting it may be difficult so keep it short and gradually increase the duration.
Next Steps
Consult nearest Service provider and follow the 4 advices given that should make a huge difference.
