What causes shoulder pain after an auto injury? How can a chiropractor help?

Why is shoulder pain such a common problem after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you heal? Let's look at why shoulder pain is commonly experienced after an auto collision and see how chiropractic can help you get better. 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 care 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 different ways that you can develop shoulder pain after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder or by radiating pain from the neck.

Direct damage 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 crash. With this type of trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain soon after the crash.

More commonly, Silver Chiropractic & Wellness finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a crash, but starts a few days or weeks after the accident. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured soft tissue in your neck can pinch nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or soreness in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

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

You don't have to suffer from shoulder pain. Silver Chiropractic & Wellness is conveniently located in Jacksonville to help you recover, whether you've been in a car crash or not. If you've been hurt in a car crash and you're struggling with shoulder pain, Silver Chiropractic & Wellness is here to help.

Silver Chiropractic & Wellness will first determine what's causing your pain and then work to restore your body to its natural functioning.
