Shoulder discomfort is a condition reported by many auto injury patients, and there are two typical causes.
The first is direct trauma to the shoulder during the impact. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. Also, if you are clenching the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, placing stress on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so straightforward and can be more challenging to diagnose. Shock to the neck or back can create stress on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be perplexing, as the painful sensation or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
