In brief: Cervical rib
An extra, small rib on the lower cervical vertebra can cause shoulder pain because it may trap or cause pressure on the nerves and blood vessels that pass behind the clavicle and into the axilla to provide sensation and blood flow to your arm. The symptoms can occur anywhere from your finger tips to your neck.
If this is persistent, the treatment is to remove the extra rib.
