Shoulder Pain and Auto Accidents

Shoulder discomfort is a condition reported by many of our Fargo car crash patients, and there are two common causes.

The first is direct trauma to the shoulder during the impact. 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 crash, your body can lag behind the car, putting stress on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is not so straightforward and can be harder to identify. Injuries to the neck or spine can produce stress 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.
