Shoulder discomfort is a condition reported by many car crash patients, and there are two typical explanations.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. In addition, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, placing tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be more challenging to diagnose. Injury 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 baffling, as the discomfort or numbness is experienced in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
