Shoulder Pain after Auto Collision
Shoulder soreness is a problem reported by many car crash patients, and there are two basic causes.
The first is direct trauma to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end crash, your body can lag behind the car, applying tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not as direct and can be trickier to identify. Stress to the neck or back can produce tension on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be baffling, as the discomfort or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
