Shoulder Sprain from a Car Accident

The Importance of Seeking Legal Help After a Shoulder Sprain from a Car Accident

A shoulder sprain is a common injury from a car accident.

Types of Shoulder Sprains

Several types of shoulder sprains can occur due a car accident. These include acromioclavicular (AC) joint sprains, rotator cuff sprains, and scapular sprains.

AC joint sprains are caused by injury to the ligaments connecting the acromion and clavicle bones in the shoulder, while rotator cuff sprains occur when the tendons that hold the shoulder joint in place become torn or stretched.   Scapular sprains happen when the shoulder blade is pulled or twisted unnaturally. Each type of sprain can cause pain, swelling, and limited range of motion in the affected shoulder.

A shoulder sprain can lead to long-term complications if not treated properly. You may experience chronic pain, limited range of motion, and weakness in the affected arm. These symptoms can significantly affect your quality of life and ability to work. It is essential to seek medical attention if you suspect you have a shoulder sprain to ensure proper treatment and prevent further injury.
