I have had a dull aching pain in my right arm for at least

Resolved Question:

I have had a dull aching pain in my right arm for at least 8 weeks now. The pain radiates down my right arm starting from back of neck, to shoulder, stopping at my elbow however sometimes the pain can reach down to my hand. Before I make an appointment to see a Chiropractor - could this be a back problem?
