Dr. Ralph Morgan Lewis
Family Medicine
In brief: Trapezius pain
May be muscle spasm from carrying the baby on one side more than the other. Try alternating arms (if baby will co-operate).
Use moist heat to neck & shoulders. Have spouse massage neck & shoulders. Do range-of-motion stretching exercises for neck & shoulders. If no improvement, see doc.
