Car accidents can result in injuries throughout the body, including the shoulders. One kind of serious injury that can be caused by a car accident is a shoulder dislocation. According to WebMD, a shoulder dislocation occurs when the shoulder is pulled back too hard or rotated too far, causing the top of the arm to pop out of its socket. Shoulder dislocations cause pain and weakness, and an injured person may also experience swelling, numbness, and bruising.
Consult a medical doctor
A medical doctor should be consulted regarding a potential shoulder dislocation, and treatment will often include putting the bones back in position, immobilization of the shoulder, physical therapy, and possibly surgery.
