What causes shoulder pain after a car crash? How can a chiropractor help?

Why is shoulder pain such a common problem after an auto collision? How can chiropractic care help you heal? Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help. The key to recovering from shoulder pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help. Your chiropractor can be very helpful for shoulder pain symptoms after a crash. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to treat shoulder pain.

There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder pain after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by referred pain from the neck.

Direct trauma can be caused by hitting your shoulder on a hard object in the car during the impact, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end collision. With this type of trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain shortly after the crash.

More commonly, Dr. Holland finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured ligaments or muscles in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've worked with both kinds of shoulder pain in our North County St. Louis, MO office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
