Shoulder Pain Auto Injury

Shoulder soreness is a problem experienced by many auto injury patients, and there are two typical causes.

The first is direct trauma to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. In addition, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end collision, your body can lag behind the car, placing tension on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is not as straightforward and can be harder to identify. Shock to the neck or spine can create tension on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confounding, as the discomfort or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
