Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Injury
We treat many car accident cases in in our Waldorf, MD office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after an auto injury and see how chiropractic can help you get better.
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 underneath and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If damaged, the muscles become swollen and sore, 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
