Prolonged computer use is increasingly causing a rise in cases of non-specific neck pain worldwide. Office workers, in particular, face heightened risks of work-related disabilities due to the inherent demands of their jobs. These work-related physical risk factors have been acknowledged as significant contributors to the development of non-specific neck pain over time. It is believed that maintaining a single body position for an extended period can lead to discomfort and fatigue.
