If you suffer from thoracic outlet syndrome after an auto collision, don't despair. Back Pain Chiropractic sees this type of problem frequently in our Texarkana office. Chiropractic care can be very helpful for thoracic outlet syndrome symptoms after a crash. Let's see what causes thoracic outlet syndrome and why chiropractic works.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that pass through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of space, so they travel under and between the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and tender, and they can develop scar tissue which limits 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 wrist. Pressure on the blood vessels can also cause problems in the arm.
Chiropractic can be an effective way to treat thoracic outlet syndrome, as Back Pain Chiropractic will help improve mobility in your spine and restore normal nerve movement in your neck and shoulder.
