A burner may be caused by:
Stretching of the Brachial Plexus Nerves
This can be caused by your shoulder being pushed down while your head is forced to the other side.
Pinching of the Brachial Plexus Nerves
This can happen if your head is moved quickly to one side.
Bruising of the Brachial Plexus Nerves
This can happen when the area above your collarbone is hit directly or pressure on the top of your head compresses the brachial plexus nerves against bone.
