If you injured your neck, you might be wondering why your arm is hurting. Many neck injuries result in nerve damage in the cervical spine. The cervical spine and its surrounding tissues are a complex network that helps control multiple functions in your body including sensation and motor skills in your arms and hands. Nerve injuries feel like pins and needles or the feeling of your hand “falling asleep.” It is essential to seek medical treatment right away to determine if you have injured a nerve in your neck.
