Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Green sees often in our Estero, Bonita Springs office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash and see how chiropractic care can help.
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 space, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts pressure 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.
Chiropractic adjustments can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Dr. Green will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve movement in your neck and shoulder.
