We work with many car accident cases in our Buffalo office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. If you have shoulder pain after a car crash, don't worry. Shoulder Pain is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness, P. C. sees often in our Buffalo office.
There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct injury to the shoulder or by radiating pain from the neck.
Direct trauma 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 impact. With this type of injury, you'll usually be aware of the pain soon after the crash.
More commonly, Buffalo Family Chiropractic Wellness, P. C. finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured soft tissue in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with both kinds of shoulder problems in our Buffalo office. This care involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
