Shoulder Injury from Auto Accident

How Chiropractors Treat a Shoulder Injury from an Auto Accident

The shoulders are highly complex joints that offer remarkable body movement capabilities while providing junctions for the nerves in the spine and neck to connect with the rest of the body. At Houma-Thibodaux Spine & Rehabilitation, with two locations in Houma and Thibodaux, our chiropractic care professionals can help identify and treat auto-injury shoulder pain that may result from a dislocated shoulder or excessive stress along the spine, shoulder ligaments, and nerves.

.

What is the Shoulder Joint?

Each shoulder joint (also known as the shoulder girdle) is comprised of two main joints:

  • The Acromioclavicular Joint – This is the joint created where the shoulder blade/scapula meets the collarbone.
  • The Glenohumeral Joint – This is the joint created where the upper arm bone/humerus is inserted into the glenoid cavity – another name for the shoulder socket.

Common Causes of Shoulder Pain from Auto Accidents

The most common types of shoulder auto injuries include those that impact the musculoskeletal system. The symptoms and causes of each type of auto injury vary but may consist of:

  • A whiplash injury.
  • An injury caused by a seatbelt.
  • A dislocated/fractured shoulder or collarbone.
  • A rotator cuff strain or tear.
  • Contusions and bruising.
  • Nerve damage and injury.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis, and more.

How Can a Chiropractor Reduce Shoulder Pain & Increase Range of Motion

A chiropractor has the experience, skills, and techniques to assist you in moving about without shoulder pain and enjoying your daily life again – as it was prior to the car collision that created your pain and discomfort.

Professional chiropractors treat shoulder issues using one or more of the following chiropractic treatment methods, depending on the injury and the patient’s objectives:

  • Adjust and align the shoulder, scapula, clavicle, and spine.
  • Spinal decompression.
  • Complementary treatments, such as massage therapy, can support healing by encouraging blood flow to the injured area, reducing inflammation caused by sprains, strains, tears, and other related shoulder injuries from an auto collision.
  • Dry needling.
  • E-Stimulation (electronic stimulation) can help lessen discomfort and pain.
  • Therapeutic or corrective exercises and more.
