Shoulder soreness is a problem reported by many auto collision patients, and there are two typical explanations.
The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. Also, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your body 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 difficult to identify. Trauma to the neck or spine can produce pressure on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confounding, as the discomfort or numbness is experienced in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
