Brief Answer:
Get investigated.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have read your query.

It seems there is muscle pull in shoulder region which is now causing cervical region involved, that is if not treated cervical sprain may start developing.

So I advise you to get xray of cervical spine in AP and Lateral view and xray of shoulder in AP View and send me the report.

Till then have tab. aceclofenac100mg +thiocolchicoside4mg twice a day, cap. pregabalin75mg+methylcobalamine750mcg at night by prescription of doctor.

Complete rest is required except for nature call.

Apply hot packs.

Avoid any type of exercise.

I hope it helps.

Thanks,

Dr.CHANDER XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
