Shoulder Pain After an Auto Injury

Shoulder discomfort is a problem reported by many auto injury patients in our Henderson clinic, and there are two typical explanations.

The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, placing strain on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be more difficult to diagnose. Damage to the neck or back can create stress on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be puzzling, as the pain or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
