Neck pain from an injury or irritation to a nerve’s root in the neck as it exits from the vertebrae may radiate down the arm toward the right or left hand. Known as cervical radiculopathy, the condition could be caused by a narrow spinal canal or stenosis, or from a disc that is displaced and compressing the nerve. The intensity of pain varies dramatically, from a dull non-localized ache to a precise sharp and burning sensation. One can feel pain, weakness, or numbness in the shoulder, arm, wrist, or hand.
Seeking help for back and neck pain can be frustrating and disheartening.
