Rotator cuff issue?: The shoulder is the most complex joint in the body. You have the cuff muscles 4 and 2ndary muscles. ~16 muscles that have to work together for a smooth range of motion. Think flesh=muscles/tissue and not bone. Start self-pro massage, chiropractor, heat, and stretching. In my practice acupuncture is the best tool! ...Read more

I have three compression fractures in my back and now havin neck and shoulder pain running down my arm what causes this? None

If : If you have compression fractures, arthritis, and degenerative disc disease in your back, it's likely the same processes are occurring in your neck. When the nerve roots in your neck are pinched or irritated by bulging discs or osteophytes (bone spurs), you could have pain, numbness or other sensations in your arms and hands. (it's like having sciatica in your arms.) if left untreated, you could eventually develop weakness in your upper extremities. See your doctor about these symptoms. He/she may want to arrange an MRI of your neck. Good luck! ...Read more

See an orthopedist: Neck pain commonly is due to muscle spasms, poor posture, arthritis, herniated disks etc. Shoulder pain can be referred from the neck or it could be locally from the shoulder. Common local problems include but not limited to spasms, arthritis in the ball and socket or ac joint, bursitis, impingement, rotator cuff tear, labral tears, biceps problems, stiffness, and instability. See an orthopedist. ...Read more

Most common cause of chest pain on young people is musculoskeletal in nature like costochondritis or muscle sprains after heavy lifting. Do you have pain when you touch the chest area? Any pain in deep inspiration? Do you have history of heartburn? ...Read more
