Hopkins, MN Whiplash Treatment and Shoulder Pain

Google+

Shoulder discomfort is a condition reported by many car wreck patients, and there are two typical explanations.



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

The second cause of shoulder pain is not as direct and can be more challenging to identify. Trauma 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 perplexing, as the pain or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
