Killeen Auto Injury Treatment: Shoulder Pain

Shoulder pain is a problem reported by many auto collision patients, and there are two typical causes.

The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end crash, your torso can lag behind the car, placing stress on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is not so direct and can be trickier to identify. Trauma to the neck or spine can create stress on the nerves 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.
