Can adjusting the armrests on an ergonomic chair make me more comfortable?

Use the Armrests on Your Ergonomic Chair to Relieve Neck and Shoulder Strain

Don't ignore the armrests on your ergonomic desk chair. Resting your forearms on the armrests should lift your arms slightly at the shoulders and relieve some of the neck and shoulder strain that accompanies extended sitting. The armrests should be at a height that puts your forearms at about a 90-degree angle to your torso.
