If you have thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident, don't worry. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees this type of condition very often in our Henderson, NV office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common problem after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
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 travel under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed and sore, 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.
