We see many auto injury patients in our St Louis office, and shoulder soreness is a problem experienced by many car wreck patients. There are two common causes that we see regularly.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end crash, your torso can lag behind the car, placing tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so direct and can be tougher to diagnose. Trauma to the neck or back can produce pressure on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be baffling, as the painful sensation or numbness is experienced in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
