Shoulder, Arm, Wrist And Hand Injuries

Many people suffer from shoulder pain or problems either immediately or shortly after a car wreck. The shoulder joint has the greatest range of motion of any joint in the body. Because of this mobility, the shoulder is more likely to be injured. Also, hand and wrist injuries are a common consequence of car accidents due to the force of the impact.
