We treat many auto injury cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help.
There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder pain after an accident: by direct injury to the shoulder or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct trauma can be caused by striking your shoulder on a hard object in the car during the impact, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end collision. With this type of injury, you'll often be aware of the pain soon after the wreck.
More commonly, Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured soft tissue in your neck can tweak nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Henderson, NV office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
