Do you suffer from radiating pain that seems to be spreading from your neck to your shoulder, arm, and even your hands? You're not alone. This type of pain is a common issue that affects many people, and it can be caused by a variety of reasons. But what exactly is radiating pain, and what causes it?
The source of radiating pain is often the cervical spine, or your neck. The nerves that control sensation and movement travel from your neck down to your arms, and if these nerves are compressed, you may experience pain in other areas of your body. The compression of these nerves can be caused by poor posture, poor alignment, muscle weakness, or injury, which can result in changes to the structure of your spine.
When the structure of your spine changes, the holes (foramen) where the nerves exit from your spinal cord to the shoulders and upper extremities can narrow, causing compression on the nerve structures. This is why improving neck joint mobility, posture, alignment, and muscle strength is so crucial for resolving radiating pain.
