Can an ultrasound on your neck cause nerve pain in hands? Never had this issue prior to physical therapy.

In brief: Possibly

Any thing that causes an injury to your neck can cause arm and hand nerve symptoms, such as pain, numbness or weakness.
This is because the nerves that run into your arms and down to your hands start in the neck. However, the neck problem that caused you to get ultrasound treatment of the neck is a much more likely culprit for the problems...and hand pain can have many other causes. See Doctor.

In brief: Neck ultrasound

The technician would have had to apply significant pressure to your neck and this is unlikely.
The real question is why the neck ultrasound?
