What most helped me is wearing almost all day long a small weight on my head to naturally correct posture (see gokhale method, gokhale head cushion) and getting my upper body much stronger (calisthenics). I also now totally avoid the sitting position, and only work standing on computer. I also tested a ton of different ergonomic pillows to find a good sleeping position. Eventually I sleep with almost no pillow (a very thin one).
