Cervical rib may exert pressure on brachial plexus, the nerve roots that emerge from the neck. It may present neurological as well as vascular ( circulatory) issues. Often the posture changes in ageing aggravates the symptoms. As conservative management in the form of Physiotherapy is the first line of management, it's better to approach a Physiotherapist to get yourself evaluated for understanding the level of involvement. Physiotherapy can help in alleviating pain and posture correction and manual therapy concept exercises can help in preventing further complications in future. If conservative management doesn't help, you may be referred for opinion from a surgeon. Hope information was useful to you.
