If you are dealing with shoulder pain after a car crash, don't worry. Our Chiropractic Team sees this type of problem often in our Hernando, Horn Lake & Olive Branch, MS office. What causes shoulder pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help?
There are at least two different ways that you can get shoulder problems after an accident: by direct injury to the shoulder joint or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by hitting 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 soon after the crash.
More frequently, Our Chiropractic Team finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured soft tissue in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
