When tennis and baseball players experience pain in their hands, arms, and shoulders, they might immediately suspect that the source of the pain can be found directly where it is experienced. However, when an injury occurs near the root of a nerve, it could result in pain at the end of the nerve, where sensation is felt. Such may be the case when an injury to the vertebrae or discs in the neck could result in pain, numbness, or weakness in the shoulder, arm, or hand. That is because the nerves that extend out from between the cervical vertebrae provide sensation and trigger movements in these areas. Fortunately, chiropractors are experienced in tracing the sources of nerve-related pain.
