This type of pain is often called referred pain, which means that the pain is felt in a different area than its source. The most likely cause of this type of pain is nerve irritation or compression in the neck, shoulders, and/or back, which can create radiating pain throughout the body. It is possible that the pain is being caused by an underlying condition, such as a pinched nerve, spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc. If you are experiencing this type of pain, it is important to see a doctor for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.

My neck and shoulders are always sore. I feel muscle knots there. What can I do to get rid of them (besides better posture)?
  1. Try self-massage. Use a foam roller, tennis ball, or even your own hands and fingers to apply gentle pressure to the affected area. 
  2. Take a warm bath. The heat can help to relax your muscles and reduce the pain and stiffness. 
  3. Practice stretching exercises. Target your neck and shoulder muscles in particular with stretches like shoulder shrugs, neck rolls, and shoulder blade squeezes. 
  4. Apply a heating pad or hot compress. This can help to reduce inflammation and decrease pain. 
  5. Get a professional massage. A massage therapist can help to identify and release tight muscles that may be causing your discomfort.

My wife is having pain starting from neck, shoulder, left arm, lower back and left leg all the way down to the ankle. What are some suggestions as to what might be happening to her?

It is difficult to make any diagnosis without a physical exam and any further tests, but it sounds like your wife may be suffering from a condition called radiculopathy. Radiculopathy is a condition caused by a pinched nerve in the spine that can cause pain, tingling, and numbness in the neck, shoulder, arm, lower back and leg. Depending on where the nerve is pinched, the pain can be very localized and limited to one area, or it can extend to the entire area that is supplied by the nerve. Some possible treatments for radiculopathy include physical therapy, medications (such as anti-inflammatories or muscle relaxants), epidural steroid injections, and even surgery in some cases. It is best to speak to a doctor to determine the cause of your wife’s pain and the best treatment for her condition.
