Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Accidents
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda sees 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 heal?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These 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 collision, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
