What could be the cause of winging left scapula and pain in the neck when turning?

When I turn my neck I have refereed pain, what is causing this?


Answer by  NYCCDC (311)

The winging left scapula is likely caused by a weak serratus anterior muscle on that side. The neck pain can be due to muscular hypertonicity, a sprain/strain, disc herniation, or joint degeneration in the neck. A better diagnosis would come from a Chiropractor, PT, or MD. Depending on your history and pain referral the doctor will diagnose the problem.

You need to contact your doctor and tell them what the pain is that you are feeling and ask them what the best course of action is they will be able to tell you in detail what is causing the pain. It may be chronic pain which alot of times has no real reason to be there.

The most common cause of winging left scapula will be due to weakness of left serratus anterior muscle (due to injury or impingement of the long thoracic nerve). Neck pain on the other hand could be due to the nerve injury, muscular problem or slipped disc at the area of concerned.

You are most likely experiencing a pinch nerved and would need to visit a chiropractor for an adjustment. The never is probably pinched in your spine and when you turn your head the spine contracts onto the nerve causing you pain.

I get pain in the neck for many different reasons. Sometimes when I wake up and turn my neck, it hurts. The cause of this is because I probably slept in the wrong position. Other times my neck hurt for hitting the books too much. I keep looking down for hours and slowly feel neck pain.

You might have kept your head in the same position for a long time while sleeping. While sleeping, avoid using thick pillow and thereafter practice to sleep without using pillow.
