Neck and shoulders or arm pain are very common among office workers and others who have to maintain same head position for long time. Causes of neck pain range from joint degeneration, arthritis, muscle tension or spinal joint dysfunction to a disc bulge. Each of these conditions is characterized by different signs and symptoms thus a detailed examination and often spinal imaging are necessary for proper diagnosis and treatment.
