Our expert says:
In short you have bony outgrowths on the C5/6 level and the openings where the nerve roots leave the spinal cord to go to the arms, are slightly narrowed - this can cause pain or needles and pins in the shoulder area and upper arms. This can also cause muscle spasm in the shoulder and upper back area. Try physiotherapy first to see if this will relieve the pain?
