I have shoulder pain after playing tennis. I have been told this is a neck sprain. What should I do?

I have shoulder pain after playing tennis. I have been told this is a neck sprain. What should I do?

Stretch / PT / Yoga: Pain in a shoulder or arm can be the result of muscles or nerves being "pinched" higher up. We all tend to spend too much time on the computer (typing this answer!) - repeated use and underlying tension (not to mention disc disease) minimize the space through which nerves and muscles travel. Good "soft tissue work" either by stretching, getting physical therapy can help a lot. Yoga is terrific.

Right side of neck sprained, healing techniques? And hurts when I swallow, struggle to have drink and eat, what to do?

Be seen: If you are "struggling" to eat and drink, I would recommend you be seen just to make sure there is not something more going on than a strain to your neck.

Neck Shoulder Sprain F/age 62. NP at clinic said m spasm. 2 weeks later still inner nerve type quivering from neck to left outer upper bicep all night?

Spine consult: You need a referral to a spine surgeon for X-rays of your spine to rule out vertebral fracture common in your age group and also a bone spur that can irritate the spinal nerve running from your spine to your bicep=radiculopathy. SSRIs and gabapentin good for this pain but if you have weakness surgery may be indicated for a herniated disc or compressed nerve. Stay calm and see spine surgeon.

Pain: Symptoms of a neck sprain can include pain, limited or painful movements, muscle spasm, and stiffness. Pain which radiates down an arm to your fingers might be something more like a pinched nerve. Sprains usually improve with time, anti inflammatory medications and therapy. Whenever concerned, please be evaluated by your favorite orthopedic surgeon!

On 9-26-12, my neck was injured and I heard it crack. The pain is getting worse after a sprained neck was diagnosed. Jaw and back now hurt. Why?!

Need workup: Neck pain which radiates must be diagnosed properly. No quick answer. An MRI may be helpful. The jaw must also alert to possible temporo mandibular joint injury.

Can lower back pain cause neck and shoulder pain? How can a sprain on one place cause sprain somewhere else?

Can lower back pain cause neck and shoulder pain? How can a sprain on one place cause sprain somewhere else?

Neck and Shoulder: Lower back pain does not usually cause neck and shoulder pain. They may be related to a common problem or completely separate issues. Best to be evaluated to determine. A sprain is an injury to a ligament. A ligament holds bone to bone. Injuring one ligament does not cause a sprain to another ligament unless there is trauma to both.

I went thru a wood deck (fell) & sprained ankle. 2 days later my back and neck hurt (no xray on back yet). estimate of how long will back will hurt?

Varies: Back injuries and their recovery vary tremendously based upon the more specific aspect of what was injured. A simple lumbar strain would be expected to be better by 7-14 days. If it does not improve, or if you start developing pain or numbness that runs down the leg, don't hesitate to be seen.

I sprain wrist 10 mon ago. Still having intense burning pain. Last night, without warning, the intense burning pain started in hip and neck. Related?

Need more info: Having intense burning pain in your wrist 10 months after spraining it is a bit unusual, as is intense burning in your neck and hip. If symptoms persist best to have an exam with your physician. Any opinion offered here would be only a guess.
