I feel pain in my neck but also into my hand, is that bad?

When people have neck pain they sometimes also feel pain in the shoulder blade, arm or hand. But why do they have this ‘extra’ area of pain? Your first thought might be a heart attack or a disc problem in your neck. However, the most common cause is a muscle  trigger point at the same time as they have stuck neck  joints. And the pain from the trigger point can travel a long distance away from that muscle.

It is important to both restore stuck neck joints to normal mobility and also treat muscle trigger points to address both causes of pain. Trigger points can hurt just as much as a stuck joint, and people very often have both pains at the same time.

You can see where trigger points can send their pain from the charts in this link.
