Yes: As much as we would like simple solutions, pulled muscles almost always affect surrounding tissues and other muscles, especially in the head and neck area. You should work with a physical therapist and also integrate massage therapy into your healing regimen. Chiropractic care may also assist in finding good musculoskeletal harmony and decreasing future incidents.

Yes: A pulled muscle will affect the adjacent muscles. The muscles that you mention are part of the longitudinal muscle support for your body so when one gets injured the others get strained to make up for the injury.
