Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Accidents
We treat many car accident cases in in our Stamford, CT office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after an accident and see how chiropractic 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 pass underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become inflamed and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts pressure 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.
