Neck Burner/Stinger

A Neck Burner/Stinger occurs when you overstretch the neck in a major fall or sporting injury. The result is arm and neck symptoms such as numbness, pins and needles, tingling, or weakness.

Definition of Condition Title

Nerves are like electrical cables that travel through the spinal canal carrying messages between your brain and muscles. The nerves that provide feeling and movement to the arm branch out of the spinal canal at the neck They join together to form a larger bundle, or cord, of nerves. This cord is called the brachial plexus. All of the nerve supply to the arm runs through this plexus.

A Neck Burner/Stinger occurs when the nerves in the brachial plexus are stretched or compressed, usually during an injury. The pain often goes away in minutes, hours, or days after an injury. But it can happen again and again

Signs and Symptoms of Neck Burner/Stinger

People with Neck Burner/Stinger often experience the following: neck and shoulder pain, pins and needles, tingling or burning sensations down the arm, and even weakness

  • neck and shoulder pain
  • pins and needles
  • tingling or burning sensations down the arm
  • weakness

Causes of Neck Burner/Stinger

An injury to the brachial plexus can cause a Neck Burner/Stinger. This often happens when the head is forcefully pushed sideways and down. This bends the neck and pinches the surrounding nerves. This is usually due to some type of injury, especially when someone lands head first (e.g. off-balance landing from a catch in rugby). However, these injuries do not always require such trauma and can occur in lesser degrees. Risk factors include contact sports, and Spinal Stenosis.
