    What is the best exercise to help reduce shoulder pain due to working on the computer?

    I spend quite allot of time on my computer and even though I follow the recommended posture etc, I still experience stiffness in my shoulders and pain. Any recommendations on how to overcome this problem?

    When you are in one position the body will stiffen and when you move it will be painful when it is prolong.  Best thing to do is to stretch every now and then to avoid this.  But as far as an exercise to cure this, I really don't think there is one, otherwise it would be pretty well known.  That's my opinion anyway.

    massage your shoulders. Apply a heating pad to the affected area. Take nsaids for the pain.

    I have a similar problem and have been told to stretch, take frequent breaks and use a light weight (like a 1.5 lb weight) and do range of motion exercises on the effected shoulder, up, down, front, back, and circular motions both forward and backward. Good luck.

    Better sit straight keeping a raised position for your left elbow  so that while you work with your right hand , it will not cause much effort on your left side. Also, try to give rest  to your hands in between. There are very good herbal massage oils to relieve you from the pain  and stiffness.
