Shoulder injuries are common in car accidents. As with knees, shoulders are a complex system of joints, ligaments, muscles, and soft tissues that must work in tandem to ensure full range of motion. The physical dynamics of a car accident can cause damage to the underlying structures of the shoulder, causing:
- separations and dislocations;
- thoracic outlet syndrome and brachial plexus injury;
- tears of the rotator cuff and other muscles;
Proper arm functioning depends on a properly functioning shoulder. Any change in its flexibility and range of motion following injury can cause real disability. Often surgery is required to repair an injured shoulder.
