Whiplash is a soft tissue injury causing muscle and ligament strains, typically known for affecting your neck and spine. However, whiplash injuries, particularly severe ones, are known for expanding symptoms beyond the neck. It is very possible to experience shoulder pain in the case of a severe whiplash injury. Depending on many different factors such as, what type of accident you were involved in (t-bone, rear-end), or how the safety restraints restricted you from moving can influence how your body is affected by the whiplash. If you are experiencing whiplash after a collision, you may also be experiencing shoulder pain known as Impingement Syndrome. This happens when your tendon rubs against your shoulder blade causing irritation, swelling and pain. The backward and sudden forward motion that causes whiplash may also cause pain to areas below your neck and shoulders.
