Entrapment neuropathy of the dorsal scapular nerve is known to be one of the common causes of pain in the interscapular region. Patients with entrapment neuropathy can experience sharp, stabbing, and burning pain or an itching sensation at the neck, shoulder, and arm, as well as in the interscapular region. This nerve impingement or entrapment often leads to pain in the upper extremity and back. The signs and symptoms of dorsal scapular neuropathy bear a striking resemblance to several other diagnosis or findings in the cervicothoracic, scapular, and posterolateral arm areas; hence, diagnosing the condition can be difficult. Here, we present a case of a 29-year-old female patient who came to the outpatient clinic of Daradia Pain Hospital and was successfully managed with hydro dissection of dorsal scapular nerve.
