If you suffer from shoulder pain after a car crash, don't worry. Dr. Steve Eustice sees this type of problem frequently in our Denton, TX office. What causes shoulder pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic help?
There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by striking your shoulder on a hard surface in the car during the impact, or can occur if you have a tight grip on the steering wheel during a rear end impact. With this type of injury, you'll often be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.
More commonly, Dr. Steve Eustice finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a crash, but begins a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured ligaments or muscles in your spine can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Denton, TX office. This care involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
