Thanks for posting your query.
Pain shoulder, low back pain and numbness in hand suggest muscle strain due to overstretch or bad posture. However, spinal stenosis should also be ruled out in which narrow vertebra can compress spinal cord and present with leg or arm weakness, back pain, numbness in hand or legs.It is usually associated with aging but it may be caused by bone disease.
There is no disease called triptoma in my knowledge.
You should avoid jerky movements and bad posture.
Icing may help.
You may take muscle relaxants and naproxen or acetaminophen to relieve pain.
You are advised to visit doctor and get x-ray, MRI or/and CT scan to rule out diseases.
Hope it helps.
Take care!
