Shoulder soreness is a condition reported by many auto injury patients, and there are two basic causes.
The first is direct trauma 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 crash, your torso can lag behind the car, putting tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not as straightforward and can be more challenging to diagnose. Trauma to the neck or back can produce pressure on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be perplexing, as the pain or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
