Shoulder Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Bogan sees frequently in our Tulsa office. Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help.
There are at least two different ways that you can get shoulder problems after an accident: by direct injury to the shoulder joint or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct injury can be caused by hitting 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 impact. With this type of trauma, you'll usually be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.
More frequently, Dr. Bogan finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a crash, but begins a few days or weeks after the accident. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured muscles or ligaments in your neck can tweak nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Tulsa office. This treatment involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
