The arm muscles are among the most commonly used muscles in the body, allowing us to do most activities. All these actions are facilitated by the shoulder muscles, across where the sensory and motor nerves from the neck pass. It would make sense, therefore, that a problem affecting the shoulder would subsequently affect the arm and hands, and it does.

There are various causes for shoulder pain that eventually lead to arm and hand pain, including cervical radiculopathy, rotator cuff injury, heart attack, dislocation, and much more. Visit a physician for any ongoing arm or hand pain you are experiencing.
