We've treated many Fargo residents after an auto injury and we see a wide variety of symptoms from these types of collisions. Shoulder pain is a condition reported by many of our auto injury patients, and there are two basic explanations.
The first is direct trauma to the shoulder during the impact. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. Also, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, putting strain on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less straightforward and can be harder to diagnose. Injuries to the neck or back can produce tension on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be perplexing, as the pain or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
