In brief: Referred pain
There are several etiologies for back and shoulder pain.
Cervical and thoracic degenerative or steno tic disease can refer pain to your shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries can cause muscle strain resulting in neck and back pain. I would recommend an evaluation by an orthopaedic surgeon.
