Wife has Neck, shoulder and arm pain. Feels stiff. Physio helped but pain is back

My wife has suddenly neck and shoulder pain. Physiotherapy eases pain but issue is coming back(chin tucks, laying on foam roller with hand movements). Pain not as severe but it started this way and got worse. Dr said try physio or chiropractor. Posture issues. Before we try chiropractor on neck, want to try homeo which is non invasive after experiencing surgeries and compilations. Please suggest remedy if possible. She used to do yoga suryanamaskar and stopped that now.

Taking the prescribed medicines form past 7 days. She again had right hand fingers cold, numbness and tingling and severe arm shoulder pain. The hand is always supported by a pillow to take off strain but that day we had to go out for a few hours. Just an update to see if we need to continue or change remedy.

In place of Rhus Tox-200 please take Causticum-200

Take revised treatment for one week and then give feedback.

Just slight pain in right shoulder, arm and upper right back. Feeling much better. Thanks for the remedy.

Her pain is back but tolerable but has pins and needles sensation in entire right hand (from upper arm all the way to fingers with shoulder pain) as if its going to sleep suddenly. Cold makes it worse even hand is exposed to a fan. She is taking Causticum 1M daily and turmeric supplement, B12 vitamin D, yoga, carpel tunnel exercises which has helped all this time. But numbness has become worse at night. Hot bath makes it better Can someone please help suggest a medicine?
