Mountain bike shoulder/neck pain?

I commute to work by bicycle, and I've noticed that my shoulders and neck are often sore at the end of my 45-minute ride. What am I doing wrong?

I'm 6' tall and my bike is this one
. It has 26' wheels. I have the seat raised up rather high, level with the handlebars, because I want to get a full leg extension when I pedal. This gives me more control and more power. I would like to raise the handlebars higher, but no can do. I'd have to replace the handlebars entirely, or replace the bike entirely, both I am not wanting to do.
Is there anything I can do to ease the strain on my shoulders and neck?
