Shoulder injuries following an auto injury can be quite painful and the severity of the pain can be coming from many different areas of the shoulder. The shoulder girdle is a very complex mechanism that includes attachments of muscles, tendons, ligaments all located around a ball and socket joint. It is imperative to find the proper cause of your shoulder pain which could be stemming from one or more of the regions as mentioned above.
Injuries can occur to the shoulder by bracing yourself from the impact, trying to protect another passenger, use of seatbelt, or direct trauma from hitting part of the vehicle. No matter the mechanism of injury, finding the cause of your pain and properly fixing it is our highest objective.
