What causes shoulder pain after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?

Why is shoulder pain such a common problem after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help you recover? Let's see why shoulder pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you recover. The key to recovering from shoulder pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic can be very helpful for shoulder pain symptoms after a crash. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat shoulder pain.

There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder pain after a crash: 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 crash, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end impact. With this type of injury, you'll often be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.

More commonly, Dr. Russell finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured ligaments or muscles in your spine can tweak nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've treated both types of shoulder problems in our Henderson office. This treatment involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.

You don't have to suffer from shoulder pain. Dr. Russell is conveniently located in Henderson to help you recover, whether you've been in a car crash or not. If you've been injured in a car crash and you're struggling with shoulder pain, Dr. Russell is here to help.

First, we'll do a careful evaluation to figure out the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
