Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Auto Injury

If you are suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, you're not alone. Clinica Real sees this type of condition frequently in our Phoenix, Mesa, AZ office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common problem after an auto injury? How can your chiropractor help you recover?

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 injured, 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 numbness in the shoulder, elbow and even the hand. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
