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. Your chiropractor 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 travel 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 muscle groups can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become swollen and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits motion 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.
Chiropractic adjustments 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 function in your neck and shoulder.
