Upper Limb Pain is Common After Car Crashes
In addition to head and neck injuries, upper limb pain is among the most common complaints from those who have been involved in an auto accident. The severity of the accident does not always determine the extent of your injuries. Even minor fender benders can cause extreme upper limb pain. Symptoms may be apparent immediately or appear several days following an accident once tension subsides. The three most common causes of upper limb pain following a car crash are:
Nearly 2 million Americans suffer neck injuries in car crashes every year. When your head or neck is thrust in several different directions quickly, you may stretch ligaments that support your neck. This can lead to problems in your arms and shoulders.
Direct force to your arms, neck, or shoulders can lead to pain in these areas immediately following an accident.
If you anticipate an accident and tense your muscles as a result, counterforces may lead to injuries. This pain may not develop for weeks or months after your crash.
