Shoulder & Arm Pain Treatment in Raleigh, NC
Do you need relief from shoulder pain and arm pain? Do you have nerve pain down arm in Raleigh?
The most common cause of neck, shoulder and pain down the arm is a pinched nerve caused by a herniated or bulging spinal disc. There is usually at least some pain in the neck, but the most severe symptoms manifest along the course of the adjacent nerve, resulting in shoulder and arm pain or numbness and tingling called referred pain or radicular pain.
Muscles of the neck and upper back that reflexively spasm in an attempt to limit the motion of the offending spinal disc are a frequent cause of muscle tension headaches, a common accompanying problem. One or several of the neck nerves C5, C6, C7, C8 and T1 are most commonly involved when shoulder and arm pain symptoms are present.
Complaints of neck pain, aching shoulders, arm numbness or tingling are very common.The cervical vertebra of the neck bear far less body weight than do the lumbar vertebra of the lower back, and are therefore less subject to abnormal or excessive mechanical stress or injury due to gravitational compressive forces. However, they are much more subject to abnormal or excessive shear forces or injury such as hyper-extension/hyper-flexion whiplash injuries resulting from car accidents that can be just as damaging.
