The spinal accessory nerve (cranial nerve XI) is responsible for supplying the sternocleidomastoid muscle and trapezius muscle. Compression or irritation to this nerve can result in pain at the lower front outside portion of the neck, top of the shoulder, or chronic tight neck muscles.

Because of its superficial location near lymph nodes, this nerve can be injured during cervical lymph node biopsy.

The video below will explain the importance of the spinal accessory nerve and how to perform a nerve floss of the spinal accessory nerve to free the nerve from compression to reduce neck pain, shoulder pain, and chronic tight lower neck, upper back, and upper shoulder muscles.
