Shoulder Pain and Auto Injury

Shoulder Pain and Auto Injury

Shoulder Pain is a common problem after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Kohler sees frequently in our Bridgeville office. Why is shoulder pain such a common problem after an auto collision? How can your chiropractor help you recover?

There are at least two ways that you can develop shoulder problems after an accident: by direct trauma to the shoulder or by referred 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 trauma, you'll often be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.

More frequently, Dr. Kohler finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a collision, but begins a few days or weeks after the accident. This type of shoulder pain actually starts in the cervical spine. Injured ligaments or muscles in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing numbness, tingling, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.

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

Dr. Kohler has been helping patients in Bridgeville since 1994, so we know what you're experiencing. We're here to help you, too. First, we'll do a careful evaluation to determine the root cause of your problem, and then decide how to restore your body's natural functioning.
