Shoulder soreness is a problem experienced by many auto collision patients, and there are two common causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the collision. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel tightly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, putting tension on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is not so direct and can be trickier to diagnose. Injury to the neck or back can create tension on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be perplexing, as the discomfort or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
