Neck and Shoulder Pain Radiating Down The Arm

Do you have pain in your neck and shoulder that is also radiating down your arm?
If you do, then your pain is likely being caused by a condition called cervical radiculopathy.

Cervical radiculopathy is more commonly known as a pinched neck nerve, and medical researchers report that this condition affects a lot of people especially if you have been working from home since the COVID pandemic. Physiotherapists can help treat this cause of pain in the neck and shoulder that’s radiating down the arm. They can also help you learn about underlying conditions that can cause cervical radiculopathy.

Causes of Cervical Radiculopathy:

A pinched neck nerve can occur when the nerve fibers are damaged directly. However, this isn’t the only way that you can end up with cervical radiculopathy. Other issues that can lead to this painful condition include:

  • Herniated cervical discs
  • Cervical osteoarthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Whiplash
  • Strained neck muscles
  • Myofascial trigger points

Physiotherapy Treatment:

Before addressing pain in your neck and shoulder which is radiating down your arm, we need to first address the root cause of your cervical radiculopathy. Physiotherapists are uniquely positioned to treat this condition. For one thing, they’re experts at treating musculoskeletal injuries.

In addition, they are adept at performing many treatment techniques that can help reduce your pain, such as:

  • Manual therapy designed to stretch the neck and shoulder muscles and realign the cervical spine.
  • Dry needling that can reduce pain by breaking down myofascial trigger points in the neck and shoulder.
  • Therapeutic exercises intended to strengthen the muscles supporting your neck.

If you are tired of feeling pain in your neck and shoulder that also radiates down your arm, it’s time to do something about it.
