Can a pain in my collarbone be a type of tendonitis. Had tendonitis in both wrists and pain in my collarbone/neck feels similar. Had for 2 weeks now?

Can a pain in my collarbone be a type of tendonitis. Had tendonitis in both wrists and pain in my collarbone/neck feels similar. Had for 2 weeks now?

Not likely: Tendons are structures that muscles connect that then allow them to move various bones. Because the collar bone does not really move, there are not really any major tendons that insert much on them and so tendinitis is not a real common cause of clavicle pain. There are ligaments, joint capsules and even joints themselves that can be abnormal and can cause pain. Exam will likely reveal cause. ...Read more

I have adhesive capsullitis with tendonitis and bursitis of shoulder. Is normal to also have pain when stretching arm/neck in the upper chest/sternum?

Maybe: Depends what was the cause of these problem. I see very commonly patient that sustained an MVA or Motorcycle accident with pain in those areas that you referred. Could be a contusion or sprain of pectoralis muscles. Costochondritis could also be considered if pain in sternum/rib junction reproduced with palpation. ...Read more

Does tendonitis in the arm go away and why are surrounding muscles, breast, neck, and back aching?

Does tendonitis in the arm go away and why are surrounding muscles, breast, neck, and back aching?

Activity causes it: Look at the activity that you are doing that causes the strain on the tendon. Stop what you are doing or figure a different way to do it. The other pains are from you guarding the part that hurts and moving abnormally. Sports medicine research shows that the most effective treatment of acute tendonitis is a big ice bag and an ace wrap. Not 2 tight! It aches 6 minutes before it gets numb. ...Read more

Neck tendonitis. Is 3 weeks with a neck brace too long? Scared about muscle atrophy. Doc insists 3 wks bracing then Physio to restore muscles, ?

Neck tendonitis. Is 3 weeks with a neck brace too long? Scared about muscle atrophy. Doc insists 3 wks bracing then Physio to restore muscles, ?

Yes: Yes, in my opinion, 3 weeks in a neck brace is too long for a simple cervical strain. If you still need to wear a neck brace 3 weeks after injury, then further studies such an MRI should be considered. If it is just a strain, collar rarely used long secondary to causing iatrogenic stiffness and atrophy. ...Read more

Can tendinitis in the arm cause osteoarthritis in neck? Hurt my left shoulder and 9months later started having neck pain. MRI was normal in shoulder

Can tendinitis in the arm cause osteoarthritis in neck? Hurt my left shoulder and 9months later started having neck pain. MRI was normal in shoulder

Guarding causes pain: When you have shoulder pain for a length of time you change the way you sit, stand and move, so your neck may be strained from the altered postures and motions. It's very common. And mild arthritis that was there before may become symptomatic, but less likely. Correct any muscle imbalance around the neck and middle back and the pain should resolve. Try physical therapy for 1 month, then re-eval ...Read more
