Shoulder soreness is a condition reported by many car crash patients, and there are two common causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, applying tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so straightforward and can be harder to diagnose. Injury to the neck or spine can create pressure on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confounding, as the painful sensation or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
