We work with many car accident cases in our Sayville office, and a common symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. If you suffer from shoulder pain after a car crash, don't worry. Shoulder Pain is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Precision Chiropractic sees often in our Sayville office.
There are at least two ways that you can get shoulder problems after a crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by striking 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 crash. With this type of injury, you'll usually be aware of the pain shortly after the crash.
More frequently, Precision Chiropractic finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the neck. Injured ligaments or muscles in your neck can tweak nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with both kinds of shoulder problems in our Sayville office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
