Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common problem after an auto injury, and it's something that Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center sees frequently in our Parma, Middleburg Heights office. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is frequently experienced after an auto collision and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of space, so they pass under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a collision, these muscle groups 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
