Shoulder Pain After Auto Injuries
Shoulder discomfort is a condition reported by many car crash patients, and there are two common causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. In addition, if you are clenching the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your body can lag behind the car, applying strain on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be harder to diagnose. Damage to the neck or spine can produce stress on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confusing, as the discomfort or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
