Whiplash Therapy and Shoulder Pain
Shoulder soreness is a problem experienced by many auto collision patients, and there are two common explanations.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the impact. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. Also, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, putting stress on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be trickier to identify. Damage to the neck or back can create tension on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be puzzling, as the discomfort or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
