Cervical strain – a common cause of neck and shoulder pain

Cervical strain is a common cause of neck and head pain and may even spread to the shoulder and upper arms. At times, cervical strain or muscle may be improperly diagnosed as cervical nerve irritation (radiculopathy). It is important to consult with your doctor about the different causes of head and neck pain to properly diagnose your condition. Treatments range from medication management and physical therapy to interventions including epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, or muscular trigger point injections. It is important to discuss with your doctor to determine proper diagnosis and which treatment may be the best.
