Shoulder Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. David Groneck sees frequently in our Humble office. Why is shoulder pain such a common symptom after a car crash? How can your chiropractor help you get better?
There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder pain after an accident: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by radiating 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 impact. With this type of trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain soon after the wreck.
More frequently, Dr. David Groneck finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a crash, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured soft tissue in your neck can pinch nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Humble office. This treatment involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
