Thoracic outlet syndrome is experienced as numbness, prickling, soreness or decreased blood flow in the shoulders, arms or hands. It's a fairly common problem we see in auto injury patients who visit our Henderson office.
The thoracic outlet is a narrow space where a vital bundle of nerves and blood vessels travel between the head and arm. The space is narrow and injury to the neck can cause inflammation of the muscle tissue in the region, which can then compress the nerves and result in symptoms.
Because the neck is a very complex area, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact origin of your pain, and other conditions can imitate the symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome.
If you have been in a car crash and have signs of thoracic outlet syndrome, Dr. Russell is here to help. We can help establish the underlying cause of your problem and develop a thourough plan of action to help you reclaim your health. We have helped many patients in Henderson, NV recover from these types of injuries since and we may be able to help you, as well!
