We manage many auto injury cases in in our Texarkana office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's take a look at why thoracic outlet syndrome is commonly 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 room, so they travel under 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 tender, and they can develop scar tissue which restricts movement and puts stress 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.
