Shoulder discomfort is a condition experienced by many auto injury patients, and there are two basic causes.
The first is direct injury to the shoulder during the crash. If your shoulder hits something directly, it can damage the joint capsule. In addition, if you are gripping the steering wheel firmly during a rear-end impact, your body can lag behind the car, putting stress on your wrists and shoulders.
The second cause of shoulder pain is less direct and can be more difficult to diagnose. Trauma to the neck or spine can produce tension on the nerve fibers that travel from the spine to your shoulder, arm, and hands. This can be confusing, as the painful sensation or numbness is felt in one part of your body, while the problem is actually in your spine.
