Abstract: The aim of this paper was to investigate the self-reported physical symptoms in the neck and the use of computers in different age groups. The study was carried out as a cross-sectional study by posting the questionnaire to 15,000 working-age Finns. The daily use of desktop computers at work is quite popular (over 60%) in the age groups 31–40, 41–50, and 51–60. In these same age groups, a very similar percentage of the respondents reported having physical symptoms in the neck as ‘very often’.
