I have had problems starting at my right wrist 8 months ago. Im 25 now and i was breakdancing last year for the first time im sure this affected my body. The pain then started up my arm shoulder and neck. I have been visiting the chiropractor for about six months. I also did physical therapy before my MRI pain won’t go away. Minor relief after chiropracter till the next week my arm,shoulder and neck hurt again. I’m a hair stylist and I know posture is important, do I need to switch my career or will surgery help. My mri results say c4-5 there is no central stenosis . Mildright forminal stenosissecondary to unconvertebral hypertrophy on the right. Minimal abutment of the exiting nerve root on the right cannot be excluded. At c5-6 there is no central stenosis. There is is mild right forminal stenosisthus is secondary to unconvertebral hypertrophy. Abutment of the exiting nerve roots c6 on the right.
Arm, shoulder and neck pain can originate from the neck but can also originate from the shoulder. You need a good spine surgeon (they have a background in orthopaedics) to differentiate between the two.
