If you suffer from shoulder pain after a car accident, don't worry. Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic sees this type of problem often in our Philadelphia office. Chiropractic is a great way to treat shoulder pain. Let's look at how shoulder pain is caused by a crash and how Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic can help you.
There are at least two different ways that you can develop shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder joint or by referred pain from the neck.
Direct damage can be caused by hitting your shoulder on a hard object in the car during the crash, 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 often be aware of the pain soon after the wreck.
More frequently, Bridesburg Spine and Injury Clinic finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a crash, but begins a few days or weeks after the accident. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the neck. Injured soft tissue in your spine can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've treated both types of shoulder problems in our Philadelphia office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural flexibility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
