Shoulder soreness is a problem experienced by many car crash patients, and there are two common causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can injure the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, putting strain on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less straightforward and can be more challenging to identify. Damage to the neck or spine can create tension on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be baffling, as the discomfort or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
