ABSTRACT:
Introduction: The prevalence of musculoskeletal discomfort resulting from musculoskeletal disorders is on the increase especially with increased use of laptops. Neck pain and laptop users are clearly connected due to extended periods of sitting in a certain position with no breaks to stretch the neck muscles. Prolong laptop use with neck bend forward, will cause the anterior neck muscles to gradually get shorter and tighter, while the muscles in the beck of neck will grow longer and weaker. These changes will lead to development of the neck pain.

Google form was made up with slump Questionnaire .The link was shared to the participants via e-mail and responses were collected .Pearson correlation test was performed to identify relationship between musculoskeletal disorder and different patterns of laptop use.
Result: Result showed that there is high prevalence of neck pain due to laptop use among student’s and academicians.
