Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after a car accident, and it's something that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees often in our Henderson, NV office. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident and see 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 nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass 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 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
