Nobody likes having a stiff neck. Whether it_s long hours stuck in traffic, endless days at the�office, or long nights of poor sleep, �there are many everyday activities that harm your neck and make it tight.
Pain in the neck or scapular region is one of the most frequent symptoms of a pinched nerve. This neck pain usually is the first sign of radiculopathy and can appear before any symptoms of pain, numbness, or weakness in the arm or fingers. Because typical signs of a pinched nerve in the arm or fingers can be delayed by weeks, this often leads to assumptions that other structures such as muscles are the cause of the neck pain.
