Shoulder Pain in Neck
Shoulder pain in neck can be caused by an injury to muscles, tendons, and ligaments within shoulder structure. The injury may occur from whiplash or from other reasons. Cervical spine (Degenerative arthritis in the neck) can cause intense neck pain and shoulder joint pain. Cervical spondylosis (disc degeneration in the neck) can cause radiating pain and also causes nerve pinching.
Shoulder Pain in Nerve
Shoulder pain in nerve is because of a pinched nerve. It occurs when a bone or swollen tissue exert pressure on the nerves. This pressure is extended from the spinal column to the neck and shoulder. Joint pain as a result of a pinched nerve is dangerous and affects directly your cervical spine. The cervical spine is connected to the nerves which are responsible for transmitting signals to and from the brain to other body parts.

You may feel the associated pain at the front side or the outer side of your shoulder while raising your arm or try to weigh something above the head. You face intense pain when lying on the affected side.
