Shoulder Pain is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Bridgett Urban, DC sees often in our Port Clinton, OH office. Chiropractic is an effective way to treat shoulder pain. Let's look at how shoulder pain is caused by a crash and how Bridgett Urban, DC can help you.
There are at least two different ways that you can get shoulder problems after a car crash: by direct trauma to the shoulder or by referred pain from the neck.
Direct damage 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 impact. With this type of trauma, you'll usually be aware of the pain shortly after the wreck.
More commonly, Bridgett Urban, DC finds that shoulder or arm pain doesn't immediately appear after a crash, but starts a few days or weeks after the trauma. This type of shoulder discomfort actually starts in the neck. Injured muscles or ligaments in your neck can squeeze nerves in your neck, causing tingling, numbness, or pain in your shoulder, elbow, or wrist.
We've worked with many types of shoulder pain in our Port Clinton, OH office. This approach involves chiropractic adjustments to restore your spine's natural mobility and exercises that strengthen your neck and shoulder.
