    You need to visit a good physiotherapy clinic and get yourself examined and the treatment will be prepared accordingly. It should include:
    HOT PACKS over neck and upper back.
    TENS(burst mode)down the shoulder and arm.
    U.S over paraspinal muscles of neck and trapezius muscle...as they must be quite tight or in spasm.
    Trigger point release to be done too.
    Once the pain subsides to a certain extent mild manual traction can be started too.
    Later on the exercises can be started and taught as well.

    You majorly need to modify your work station....and follow certain precautions:
