Shoulder Pain and Auto Injury

Shoulder Pain and Auto Injury

We manage many car accident cases in in our Lincoln office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is shoulder pain. Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after an accident and see how chiropractic care can help.

There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder problems after a crash: by direct injury to the shoulder joint or by referred pain from the neck.

Direct trauma can be caused by striking your shoulder on a hard object 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 often be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.

More commonly, Dr. Kallio finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the injury. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured ligaments or muscles in your spine can tweak nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've treated both types of shoulder pain in our Lincoln office. This treatment involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.

If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're suffering from shoulder pain, Dr. Kallio is here to help. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to establish the root cause of your pain, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning. Ready to make an appointment?
