Among office workers, repetitive strain injury in the neck is caused by working long periods in bad postures with a computer keyboard and mouse. The neck pain is most commonly associated with the trapezius muscle, a triangular muscle that extends from the neck of the head to the back. However, a team of Danish researchers has found that exercising the trapezius can reduce the pain and improve the muscle.
