Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Select Health and Wellness sees frequently in our Fleming Island, FL office. Chiropractic can be very helpful for thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes thoracic outlet syndrome and why chiropractic works.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they pass under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement and puts stress on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or pins and needles in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
