Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after an auto collision, and it's something that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees frequently in our Henderson, NV office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto injury and see how your chiropractor can help.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they travel under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts motion 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
