Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is a common symptom after a car crash, and it's something that Dr. Steve Eustice sees frequently in our Denton, TX office. Why is thoracic outlet syndrome such a common symptom after an auto injury? How can chiropractic care help you recover?
The thoracic outlet is a bundle of nerves and blood vessels 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 under and through the strong bands of muscles that support your head.
In a crash, these muscles can be stretched and strained. If injured, the muscles become inflamed 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.
