If you have thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, don't worry. Dr. Green sees this type of problem very often in our Estero, Bonita Springs office. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is frequently experienced after a car crash and see how chiropractic can help you heal.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits movement and puts pressure on the tissues of the thoracic outlet. Pressure on the nerves can cause tingling or numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
