Shoulder soreness is a condition experienced by many car crash patients, and there are two typical explanations.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. In addition, if you are clenching the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your torso can lag behind the car, applying stress on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be harder to diagnose. Injuries to the neck or spine can create tension on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confounding, as the painful sensation or numbness is sensed in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
