The neck and arm pain originating from the perivertebral structures is represented by a series of symptoms, characterized by a common brachialgic pain without metameric distribution, with associated signs of arterial and/or venous compression. These syndromes showed the most different origins, and are summoned no by: a) compression of the vascular and nervous bundles in the thoracocervical space, due to skeletal malformations, and/or skeletal malformations and wrong posture; b) syndromes of the humeral-scapular space; c) syndromes of canalicular compressions: mioentesitic syndromes of the upper limb. The clinical signs are extremely variable; therefore, the diagnosis and the consequent therapy should be based upon sophisticated exams (sonography, echo-Doppler, EMG, arteriography), as well as upon an accurate clinical and anamnestic evaluation.
