Shoulder soreness is a problem reported by many auto injury patients.

The first is direct damage to the shoulder during the wreck. If your shoulder strikes something directly, it can tear the joint capsule. In addition, if you are clenching the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end collision, your body can lag behind the car, putting tension on your wrists and shoulders.

The second cause of shoulder pain is less straightforward and can be more difficult to diagnose. Injuries to the neck or back can produce pressure on the nerves that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be puzzling, as the painful sensation or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
