Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

You sustained contusion of the neck and shoulder muscles and possibly of the shoulder joint.

Get an X-ray of the shoulder and neck done to rule out any bony injury or disc herniation of the neck vertebra. If the x-rays do not show any abnormality, a 5-7 days' thrice daily course of a combination of anti-inflammatory pain-killers (such as, ibuprofen+paracetamol combination) + a muscle relaxant, such as, chlorzoxazone will relieve you of your problems completely within 5-7 days.

Consult your doctor and apprise him of my opinion. I am certain that he agree with me; order required tests, and- based on the reports- will prescribe suitable treatment as advised.
