Shoulder pain is a condition experienced by many auto collision patients, and there are two basic explanations.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the impact. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. Also, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end crash, your body can lag behind the car, placing tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not as straightforward and can be more difficult 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 baffling, as the pain or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
