Ubiquitous: Degenerative neck and back pain is akin to wrinkles in the skin. Age happens, and the alternative (bring aging to a grinding halt with death) is not appealing.

Can cervical and thoracic issues (including levoconvex scoliosis) lead to repetitive rotator cuff tears?
NO: no relationship of your spine to rotator cuff- tears are common with age ...Read more
Not likely: They are two seperate areas and two separate conditions. It is more likely that if you injured your neck, you may have also injured your TMJ joint at the same time. Also, being in pain in general seems to increase the likelihood that TMJ will be symptomatic. Just like a person may have more migraines when their neck is bothering them.
