If you suffer from shoulder pain after an auto injury, don't despair. Alliance Chiropractic sees this type of condition often in our Tulsa office. The key to recovering from shoulder pain caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care can help.
There are at least two different ways that you can get shoulder pain after a car crash: by direct injury 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 crash. With this type of trauma, you'll usually be aware of the pain soon after the crash.
More frequently, Alliance Chiropractic finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured soft tissue in your spine can pinch nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've treated many types of shoulder pain in our Tulsa office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
