Causes of back, neck, and shoulder nerve entrapment
There are many causes of trapped or pinched nerve that surround the neck area: some may occur as a result of an old or new injury such as whiplash (WAD) or a medical condition.
However, for most people this could be the result of an injury to the structures known by various names such as a bulging, prolapsed, herniated or slipped disc.
This condition involves the discs – the soft gel-like structures positioned between the vertebrae in your neck and spine. When one or more of them get damaged- the nerves around can get trapped or pinched in between the disc and the vertebrae resulting in excruciating pain.
A bulging, prolapsed, herniated or slipped disc is not the only cause of a trapped or pinched nerve in the area of the neck.
Sleeping in an awkward position can cause trapped or pinched nerve leading to excruciating pain to the head, neck or shoulders.
However, there is likely to be an excruciating pain for several weeks if not months. Ice packs application will help to alleviate the swelling and the inflammation that accompany a trapped or pinched nerve.
