We manage many car accident cases in in our Henderson, NV office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. The key to recovering from thoracic outlet syndrome caused by a crash is to understand the root cause of the problem and how chiropractic care 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 space, so they travel 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 tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion 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 hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
