Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Crashes

Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Crashes

If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after a car crash, don't despair. Back Pain Chiropractic sees this type of condition very often in our Texarkana office. Let's look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly experienced after a car crash and see how your chiropractor can help you get better.

The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These nerves and blood vessels don't have a lot of room, 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 injured, the muscles become swollen 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.
