Pain from ear to shoulder after straining the neck. What is the treatment?

I strained my neck during a wrestling practice (as a coach) and I have had a pain from my left ear to my shoulder blade. This normally wouldn t be a problem but I found out that I cannot even do a push up. My left arm is useless, it doesnt hurt, just shuts down. It s hard to explain but it s like the body is stopping me from doing anything over a certain weight on my left side.

Rest or relaxation is vital for speedy recovery. Placing the neck in an elevated area such as pillows, during rest is helpful.

To get rid of neck pain, you can use some simple exercises at home, which may provide relief in pain from neck. You can practice an exercise, which includes moving of shoulders, and turn your head side from left to right, as this may help in providing relax from the pain.

Most of the patients of neck strain recover in one-two weeks but in some conditions, it can have long term effects such as long term discomfort, pain and limitation of movements.

Several massage treatment sessions may be needed before you achieve relief.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
