Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Rome, NY
Being involved in a car accident can be incredibly traumatic, both emotionally and physically to the body. A car accident can take its toll on the body, leading to serious injuries that can last months or even years. Sadly, many people don't realize just how serious some car accident injuries can be. It's important to get help from a chiropractor as soon as possible for those that have undergone an auto accident.

What Causes Shoulder Pain after an Auto Accident?
During an auto accident, the body goes through significant trauma both internally and externally. Both of these can lead to injuries leading to shoulder pain. For instance, chances are you're holding on to the steering wheel during an impact.
The force that impacts your wrists can travel up your arm, easily leading to broken and dislocated bones, rotator cuff injuries, and sore muscles. External injuries, such as flying debris, can also lead to traumatic shoulder injuries, such as broken bones, lacerations, and bruising. All of these can lead to shoulder pain after an accident.
What Treatment Does a Chiropractor Provide?
A chiropractor can help provide a wide range of treatments for your shoulder pain. These chiropractic treatments are aimed at helping realign your shoulder in case there are any misalignments in the joint or other area.
In addition, a chiropractor can also conduct a physical exam to determine the exact cause of your shoulder pain. Shoulder pain can also be radiating from another part of the body that was injured during a crash, such as the spine, neck, or chest area. Therefore, a chiropractor must conduct an exam to determine where the shoulder pain is coming from.
Afterward, a chiropractor will initiate treatment such as:
- Muscle massages to alleviate soreness and inflammation in the shoulder area
- Muscle exercises to help strengthen injured shoulder muscles, improve mobility and flexibility following an accident
- Chiropractic adjustments to the surrounding area of the shoulder, such as the joints and the spine if pain is radiating from there
- Electrical stimulation and soundwave therapy to fix tissues that are torn deep within the muscle
