  • Cervical herniated disc

  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Rhomboid trigger points


The purpose of this book is to shed light on the common causes of pain and dysfunction that are misdiagnosed and mistreated.  This chapter discusses the four most common conditions that cause pain to shoot down the arm that are often overlooked.  These four conditions are not the only causes of shooting arm pain.  But they are commonly missed so I have included them in this chapter.

The four conditions that I am going to discuss are: herniated disc (or bulging disc), thoracic outlet syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, and rhomboid trigger points.

The first, herniated disc, is often correctly diagnosed, but is often over-diagnosed as well. The second, thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), is very common and is often under-diagnosed. The third, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), I believe is often over-diagnosed. And the fourth, rhomboid trigger points, is often under-diagnosed.

All four share the symptoms of a shooting pain down the arm and pins and needles in the fingers. However, they originate from four different locations. Knowing how to differentiate between these conditions will greatly help to diagnose which condition you have and lead you to the correct treatment.
