During a car or other motor vehicle accident, it is common for the driver to grip onto the steering wheel tightly in order to brace for the collision. The impact of the accident can cause many types of injuries to the shoulder area, including:
- SLAP injuries, which are tears to the part of the shoulder joint called the labrum
- Rotator cuff tears
- Dislocated shoulders
- Muscle tears
- Broken bones
- Other injuries that require arthroscopic surgery
Seat Belt Injuries
Wearing a seat belt can help to save your life in a car accident, but a seat belt can also cause significant injuries. Seat belt injuries may be preferable to the injuries that may occur if you did not wear a seat belt and were thrown from a vehicle, but they can be painful nonetheless.
In addition to the pain of a shoulder injury, these injuries can limit your ability to perform many daily activities that require a full range of motion in the shoulder area. Many clients who suffer shoulder injuries end up having difficulty raising their arms above their shoulders. Changing a light bulb, brushing your teeth, combing or blow-drying your hair and other simple activities can be made much more complicated after a shoulder injury.
