Not once over the past few seasons where reports have come out concerning “nerve impingement” with neck and shoulder pains, has there ever been referral to a "cervical disc" as his source for his nerve compression. Strange? No. This is evidently because the source is not a cervical disc. When a player like Reed has sustained repeated shoulder trauma including dislocations or subluxations (pop in and out), labrum and/or rotator cuff tears, it can lead to a condition known as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome which causes impingement of all the major nerves to the shoulder and arms......and not only creates weakness in this distribution and pain in these areas, but also many times throughout the distribution of the side of the neck. Repeated trauma to the shoulder area leading to increased inflammation and swelling and thus pressure (impingement) on the nerves only serves to aggravate the severity of the condition.
