Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and Car Accidents
We work with many auto injury cases in in our Boardman, OH office, and a widespread symptom we see in our patients is thoracic outlet syndrome. Let's look at the root cause of thoracic outlet syndrome after a car accident and see how chiropractic care can help.
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of blood vessels and nerves that travel through your neck and shoulder to your arm. These vessels don't have a lot of room, so they pass 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 inflamed and sore, and they can develop scar tissue which limits 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.
