Shoulder Pain after an Auto Injury
Shoulder pain is a problem experienced by many auto collision patients, and there are two basic causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. Also, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, putting tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so straightforward and can be trickier to identify. Injury to the neck or spine can produce stress on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be baffling, as the painful sensation or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
