Many times a neck injury will cause pain or stiffness from the neck through the shoulder and even down the arm. Sometimes it will also cause numbness.

You will probably suffer a stiff arm and shoulder on the side of your neck that is injured. It will result from the unusual way you'll hold your neck.

Many times after experiencing a neck injury, you will have numbness or tingling down one, or both arms. The nerves that travel down the arms connect to the spinal cord at the neck and an injury can pinch these nerves causing this sensation.

Arm and or shoulder pain relating to a neck injury could be a herniated disc in the neck. This could cause shoulder pain and arm or hand numbness.
