If you are suffering from shoulder pain after a car accident, don't worry. Weary Chiropractic Clinic sees this type of problem frequently in our Prescott office. What causes shoulder pain after an auto injury? How can a chiropractor help?
There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder problems after a crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by referred pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by hitting your shoulder on a hard object in the car during the crash, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end collision. With this type of trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.
More frequently, Weary Chiropractic Clinic finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured muscles or ligaments in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with both kinds of shoulder pain in our Prescott office. This treatment involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
