We see many auto injury patients in our St Louis office, and a common problem is shoulder injury. Shoulder soreness is a condition experienced by many car wreck patients, and there are two basic explanations.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. In addition, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, applying tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so direct and can be harder to identify. Injury to the neck or spine can produce pressure on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be baffling, as the discomfort or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
