Bad neck posture is a common cause of neck pain. When you constantly have your neck looking up or down (as when you're looking at a computer screen), this can create neck muscle spasm and even headaches. These are called tension headaches; they usually occur in the afternoon after a long stressful work hours. Neck pain can also be caused by numerous other spinal issues including arthritis, herniated disc. Neck pain generally responds well to analgesics such as ibuprofen, paracetamol and aspirin. See a doctor if condition worsens.
