What causes shoulder pain after a car crash? How can chiropractic care help?

Why is shoulder pain such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can your chiropractor help you get better? Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after a car accident and see how chiropractic can help. 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. Chiropractic can be very helpful for shoulder pain symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes shoulder pain and why chiropractic works.

There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder pain after an accident: by direct injury to the shoulder joint or by referred 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 collision. With this type of trauma, you'll usually be aware of the pain soon after the wreck.

More frequently, Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the accident. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured ligaments or muscles in your neck can pinch nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've worked with many types of shoulder problems in our State College office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and home exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.

You don't have to suffer from shoulder pain. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes is conveniently located in State College to help you recover, whether you've been in an auto collision or not. If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with shoulder pain, Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes is here to help. The first step is to get an accurate diagnosis to determine what's causing your symptoms and then we will determine an appropriate treatment approach. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning.
