Schererville, IN Whiplash Injury Treatment and Shoulder Pain

Shoulder soreness is a condition reported by many auto injury patients, and there are two typical explanations.

The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the impact. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. In addition, if you are gripping the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end collision, your body can lag behind the car, applying stress on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is less straightforward and can be trickier to identify. Injuries to the neck or back can produce pressure on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be puzzling, as the pain or numbness is experienced in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
