  1. Neck pain causes “sclerotogenous” referred pain.
  2. A pinched nerve in your neck causes radiculopathy.
  3. Weak supporting muscles in your neck creates shoulder instability.
  4. Thoracic outlet syndrome comes from the neck.
  5. Upper back stiffness causes neck and shoulder instability and dysfunction.
