What causes shoulder pain after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help?

Why is shoulder pain such a common condition after a car crash? How can your chiropractor help you heal? Let's look at the root cause of shoulder pain after an 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 look at how shoulder pain is caused by a crash and how Dr. Harrison can help you.

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

Direct trauma can be caused by hitting 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 collision. With this type of injury, you'll often be aware of the pain soon after the crash.

More commonly, Dr. Harrison finds that shoulder or arm pain does not immediately appear after a collision, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured soft tissue in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

We've worked with both types of shoulder problems in our Decatur office. This process 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. Dr. Harrison is conveniently located in Decatur to help you get better, whether you've been in a car crash or not. If you've been injured in a car crash and you're struggling with shoulder pain, Dr. Harrison is here to help.

First, we'll do a careful assessment to establish the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
