What is the cause of pain between shoulder and neck after an injury, and what is the treatment?

Weight lifting last night, felt immediate pain between shoulder and neck, but did not feel like the trapezius. Hard a tear sound. Can t lift head this morning without severe pain. No local swelling, but tender to touch near anterior deltoid and spine/neck. Full RoM in left shoulder. Need advice on what the injury may be and treatment.

Hello,
It sounds like a muscle or tendon tear. Rest, stay hydrated and see how it goes over the next few days. If it is not resolving soon you will need to see a physician. Muscle tears heal fairly quickly but tendon tears take longer and can be more severe. See a doctor soon if it is not resolving
