We treat many car accident cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat shoulder pain. Let's look at how shoulder pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda can help you.
There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder pain after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder or by referred pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by striking your shoulder on a hard surface 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 shortly after the wreck.
More commonly, Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a crash, but starts a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured muscles or ligaments in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Henderson, NV office. This process involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
Let us help you recover from shoulder pain. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has helped many people with the same problem, and we can probably help you, too. First, we'll do a careful assessment to establish the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
