Pain in the neck that radiates to the shoulder and often down the entire arm is often caused by a pinched nerve in the neck. This is known medically as a cervical radiculopathy. The spine is comprised of a column of bones called vertebrae and within the vertebra lays the spinal cord. In the neck or cervical spine, nerves leave the spinal cord through openings in the vertebra and run down the arm providing sensation and motor function to the arms.
